    I've seen "DH" pop up all kinds of times on this site- can anyone tell me what it means? I'm a baseball fan, so all I can think of is "designated hitter."

    I think "dear husband". That's what I have assumed. Maybe "dang husband".

    Would someone explain to me, and possibly to others, why it is necessary to us the letters DH, DD, DS? Don't most people know that these people are dear to us? Also, why wouldn't you want to write the word husband, son, or daughter? I am proud of my husband and sons and would certainly want to write the word.

    P= Principal

    I thought I was pretty good at guessing (with seeing them a few times in context) internet lingo or acros until I went to a gaming site and I just HAD to ask what NOOB meant. Ironically one of the students wrote it and I said, "I totally know what that means." (It's still kinda vague to me but I think I get it) and the student backtracked and erased it. Why? He didn't know what it meant. He was just trying to pull one over on us.

    It's a derogatory term given to newbies that don't have a clue and need to get a clue and quit being a burden. That's my understanding of it.

    I'm very proud of my DH and DD took but when I'm typing, I usually use shorthand. It makes it quicker.

    My students try to pull that on me all the time, using internet lingo to hold "secret" conversations out loud across my classroom. They like to use ones like WTF, WTH, LMAO, LMFAO, STFU, etc. You should see their faces when I say "Johnny, that's not appropriate". Johnny: "I'm just saying alphabets. They don't even mean anything". "Johnny, I know exactly what that means. You're allowed to laugh your BUTT off, but if you LMAO one more time, I'm writing you up." Johnny: :mellow:


    :lol:

    That's so funny-I was going to post the exact same thing. I'm always thinking "designated hitter"...?

    I agree, it's just quicker to write dh, or dd, or whatever when typing.
