DNQ

(1) Do Not Quote.

A way of passing on gossip while keeping oneself morally clean — by prohibiting the listener from passing it on to anyone else in due course.

Less restricted forms are "DNA" (Do Not Attribute — pass it on but don't say who told you), "DNB" (Do Not Blab — pass it on only to reasonably discreet people) and "DNP" (Do Not Publish — talk all you want, but…).

(2) A Fanzine by Victoria Vayne and Taral Wayne

A more-or-less monthly, mimeoed fanzine with thirty-four issues published by Taral Wayne and Victoria Vayne from April 1978 till October 1984.

It was a faanish newszine which "should be expected to be fluid. We read not a summation of known facts but the process of discovery of the facts" and as a consequence, was sometimes controversial.

Contributors included Jim Barker, Harry Bell, Greg Benford, John Berry, Mike Bracken, Jerry Collins, Rich Coad, August Dore, Ken Fletcher, Phil Foglio, Tom Foster, C. L. Healy, Terry Jeeves, Dave Langford, Eric Mayer, Barry Kent McKay, Bill Rotsler, Marc Schirmeister, Bob Shaw, Stu Shiffman, Ted White, Harry Warner, Jr., and Susan Wood. (Some of this was reprint.)

DNQ was parodied in 1980 by Jim Shedden, in This Sure As Hell Ain't DNQ.
