    Also seen as IMHO - In My Humble Opinion. I have also heard it as "In My Honest Opinion". Either way, IMO and IMHO states that it is an opinion and not a fact.

    An example:

    Studies show that 50% of the population are below average.

    IMHO, 70% of the population are below average.

    Never heard of it.... are you sure you don't mean ***?

    Another common one is YMMV - Your Mileage May Vary. It basically means this is how it works for me, it might be different for you.
     
  7. Last I heard FTW stood for F*** The World...... It may have changed since then.........
