Those are just shortcuts to refer to family members.

DD= dear daughter

DH= dear husband

DS= dear son

MIL= mother in law

There are others too.

It usually means "dear" but on some boards and topics it can mean something else - a four-letter word.

SO = Significant Other

DW = Wife

DGC = grandchild

DGD = granddaughter

DGS = grandson

SIL = sister-in-law

BIL = brother-in-law

And for non-family...

OTOH - on the other hand

YMMV - your mileage may vary

FWIW - for what it's worth

TIA - thanks in advance

OT - off topic (or occupational therapy)

IMO - in my opinion

etc....
