In poker chat, whether it be on a site, or in a forum, I keep seeing "imo." Sometimes, it seems fitting, but it seems like the new "lol" or something. Many times, if you substitute the words "in my opinion", it doesn't even make sense to finish or begin the particular sentence. Also, if someone is expressing theyr [sic] feelings toward a particular subject or circumstance, don't we know it is their opinion? After all, this person is the one making the statement...It seems like this is a new poker fad and is being wayyy overused "imo." -internet poker forum poster, The Shrog, someone who is thinking WAY too hard.
The term "imo," while having a literal definition, has reached meme status in online forums. People often use it now in situations where it is not appropriate, such as times when they are stating a fact, not an opinion. But, as The Shrog didn't realize, that's part of the fun.
