    groovy Active Member has been bugging me for AGES! What does IMHO mean? I've seen it used by some of you in your postings but I have no idea what you mean. I might be being very very blonde here but someone please put me out of my misery.... :p

    It means "In My Humble Opinion", but some people say it's "In My Honest Opinion".

    Would you like a list of common abbreviations used on the internet?

    I have a good one somewhere.

    Yes - a list would be great for me (and I'm sure any others that are as slow as me :wink: ) at picking ap abbreviations.
