Non-Fully Adjacent OSPF Routers

Some routers do not attempt to become fully adjacent. In particular, on interfaces in which a DR is elected, routers that are neither a DR or a BDR become neighbors, but they do not become fully adjacent. These non-fully adjacent routers do not directly exchange LSAs. Also, the "show ip ospf neighbor" command on such a router lists these neighbors in a "two-way" state as the normal stable neighbor state, and "full" as the normal stable state for the DR and BDR.
