What does "imo" mean?

Well, i encountered this abreviation on many, many times, in various threads and posts, and i am still unable to decipher what does it mean. It would be of great help if someone could explain to me. So, what does abbreviation "imo" or "IMO" mean? Thanks in advance.

Or "in my honest opinion".

The only one I use regularly is iirc, "if I recollect/remember correctly". It's great for posting information you are not sure about.


Others:

ITKs, "in the knows", to describe people leaking information about building projects or football transfers. Most are making it up and trolling, so it can also be used as a term of derision.

A few more:
LOL: Laughing Out Loud.
IIRC: If I Remember/Recall Correctly.
OTOH: On The Other Hand.
ETA: This acronym should be avoided, since it stands for Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (Basque Country and Liberty), a terrorist group.

"IMO" is an acronym for "in my opinion"

"imo" is used by people who don't understand how acronyms work or are too lazy to press the Shift key.
