I'm new to PBS (I know that one!) and find a lot of the abbreviations used in the forums hard to figure out.  Could somebody put together a list of the most common ones and post it here?  Thanks for your help.

There is a spot in the help documents:   here  Click PBS Glossary....The link didn't go straight to it, but the spot to click on is there...

Hope it helps!  And Welcome by the way...PBS is great!

I checked the PBS glossary and found lots of abbreviations, but some I see on the forums were not there. So I went on line and tried to find some of the more common ones I see. An example is DH, DS - on line it said that DS is Dumb Sh_t.  I know that is not what the posts mean. Is it Dear Sister or Dear Husband, etc.??????????

Yes, it's Dear Hubby, Dear Son/Sister.  Could also be Dumb, I guess.
