Topic: IMO / IMHO
Message: Posted by: MagicRocks (Nov 27, 2009 08:25PM)
I have been on the magic Café for several months and had come across words like "IMO" or "IMHO". I am not sure if this has already been posted or if this is the right section to post this but I hope someone will tell me what is means or stands for.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

IMHO - in my humble opinion (if the poster is feeling humble :) )

They're not magic-specific acronyms but are common all over the Net.

There is a thread here for Magic related acronyms that is pretty interesting, and may help you a little.

Actually forum rules require that you not use such abbreviations, but plain English language. We have a world wide community here and such net abbreviations don't translate well.
