I have used this abbreviation in the near future in one of my post.

(... By the way, is your native language Finnish? If yes, you will surely know why do I ask it
In my dictionary:
IMHO = in my humble opinion
Andrew, I hope, it isn't a vulgarity or a very unpolite one.
I have seen in many posts posted by many of the most active posters (not only in asking but in really helping) often use this abbreviation.
I used it when I wanted to save time for to write the more relevant informations.
At last, I see often an other abbreviation: TIA
In my decoding it means: Thanks in advance
Am I right?
P.S.: Generally I hate abbreviations but sometimes (?) I use them, manly for OneWorld terms like APPL, UBE, BSVW etc. because supposly everybody understand them on the List/Forum and would be too many time to omit the abbreviation (but many times (approx. 50%) I use the non-abbreviated terms.

"
was one of those dramatized figure of speeches; there was no intention of humbleness at all, the audience fell for those rhetoric artifices and, their mouth being finally, closed, and their attention, gracefully alert, the speaker was getting a (better) chance to be listened.
