    Not sure who it was but someone posted this rant below (which I completely agree with):

    Stop doing this: "My DH went to visit my DD and then we ate a primal lasagna with my DF."
    Why do people (sexist as it sounds, appears to be mostly women) feel compelled to use these abbreviations? I'll see a hundred word post that will be full of these D what evers so don't tell me it's about brevity. You'd never address someone as Dear Sister, Dear Husband, Dear what the fug ever, in person, so why do it online?

    Talk about useless. Who cares? Some people DO refer to their loved ones as dear something. It’s just the internet let it go.

    Make it a game for yourself, substitute “dear” for something else, I like “dick-sucking” so anytime I read it, it’s “dick sucking husband” or “dick sucking mother”, etc etc.

    Eh, I just assume that everyone they know is named Donald (yes, even the females), and they differentiate between them by last name.
    i.e. DD is Donald Duck, DS is Donald Smith, DF is Donald Focker...

    I don't participate in that, but don't really mind if others do. Sure, it's a bit overdone but oh well... a very minor, fractional part of my thought process considers it, then I get on with my life.

    I wish I had a life where other people's internet abbreviation use was my frustration for the day! I think a lot of women do it because it is standard language on women-centered forums, i.e. MDC

    Eh, in my case, it wasn't so much a frustration as something that got in the way of the story. Now that I see "Donald Duck" or "Daughter" in place of DD, it makes reading the story easier.
