    Re: I for one think.........

    Hello G2C,

    If you say "I for one think XYZ", it implies that you are not expressing your view in a tentative way.

    Perhaps the underlying meaning is "At least one person, i.e. the speaker, thinks XYZ; and there may well be others who agree".

    Best wishes,

    MrP
