Recently on the question: What is the biblical basis for the Athanasian Creed's statement that believing in the Trinity is necessary for salvation?

I noticed two users using initials like IOW and TLDR Instead of the @ ...... In the beginning of comments.

What do the initials represent? Is there a new way to alert other users that your comment is directed at them?

They're not tags, they mean In Other Words, and Too Long Didn't Read (used to introduce a summary.)

These abbreviations are easy to look up on the internet you know :)
