You're welcome. When I was new at BYC, the abbreviations puzzled me so, I thought a thread on them would be good.

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.
