    You're quite welcome. We're glad to help. :)

    It's Internet shorthand. IMO = In My Opinion.

    Re: Something about Agreement

    Here's another one (or two).

    TTYL = Talk to you later
    LOL = laughing out loud

    (I try not to overuse such things, but it is a lot easier to type "IMO" than "in my opinion".)

    Piak, just to let you know, these are initialisms (not words) and are normally only used in forums, chat and email. I wouldn't use tham in normal situations. Of course, the phrases they represent are common in normal English use (they are a short cut for lazy forum members). :P :D :wink:
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
