    "I am against something" is correct.
    "I against something" has no meaning to a native speaker of English, although if they knew the speaker was not English, they would understand what the speaker was trying to say.

    Buggles,

    Your ESP is great! I had no idea what 'stg' means!

    Thanks for clarifying the original question!

    Cheers,

    Glad to be of assistance, but I'm afraid I'm baffled by "*lol*".

    Sorry in some forums when the users type *lol* automatically this smiley appears, it didn't appear in here, sorry about confusion.

    I understand **lol**, but I'm afraid I'm baffled by **buggles**!
    (Doesn't the Palace Guard play their 'buggles' when the king and queen arrive at Windsor Castle????)

    lol = laugh out loud (I think) and I suppose you could say I against the world - or perhaps not.

    Amigos4,

    Buggles is just my nom-de-plume. I think you're picturing bugles which are kind of small trumpets.
