    Kitty, I thought that IMHO=In my honest opinion. Guess IMHO can go either way.

    Here are some other ones:

    FYI=For Your Information
    FWIW=For What It's Worth
    BTW=By the way

    Here's some more "chat lingo" abbreviations: Internet 101

    IMHO can go either way. That was the most commonly used one at the time on BYC according to the thread there.
