I've just been wondering what those mean. And Yeah, I just have to fill up space because my question is too short. So I wonder if this is long enough yet?

IMO = in my opinion

IMHO = in my humble opinion

IM = Instant Messenger

HO = ?

Well in my humble opinion I can only tell you what the first two are, maybe some one else can tell you the rest

I'm sure there is an internet slang dictionary on the web somewhere for anyone not familiar with the abbreviations.

I'll save you the googling though...

IMO In my opinion -- or, if you prefer -- Illiterate Monkey Origami

(I assume you mean IMHO) IMHO In my honest opinion -- of, if you prefer -- Illegitimately Masticated Habanero Overture

IM Instant Message -- or, if you prefer -- Illicit Manure

HO ?????? I have no idea, but I'd guess you were just trying to be clever with that IM a HO bit.

HO = honest opinion maybe?

Here are some more:

AFAIK = as far as I know
BMFPTK = broke my finger pounding the keyboard
BRB = be right back
BBL = be back later
CU = see you (often used with L8R)
IC = I see or I understand
IMHO = In My Humble Opinion
L8R = later
LOL = laughing out loud
NP = no problem
PPL = people
RE = re hi or hello again
ROTFL = rolling on the floor laughing
XMT = excuse my typing

IM a HO?

How about it amounts to simply a derrogatory mention, maybe?

ass isn't an expletive! It's a four legged mammal known for its strength, endurance, and stupidity. LOL

C'mon, let's not criminalize words describing animals. We already criminalize naturally occuring plants.

Wouldn't that then be LOMA?

Don't forget AFK = Away from Keyboard (usually used in chat)

posted on Mar, 14 2005 @ 02:26 PM

one of my favorites is RTFM. Read The Foolish (hah) Manual. It's got a good many uses. Also, a variant, STFW, Search The Foolish (haha) Web.

people also use ROFL for rolling on the floor laughing, not ROTFL, iirc (if i recall correctly. and yes that was an excuse to use that)

I forgot the old standard, STFU! = Shut the *bleep* up!
