Actually, George, according to an old list of abbreviations for IRC,
both "humble" and "honest" are recognized interpretations. Please don't
ask me to chapter and verse this, because I have no idea now where I saw
it. I merely recall other abbreviations like LOL (Laugh out loud), ROFL
(Roll on floor laughing), and the like. Of course, IMO is safer because
it is not as ambiguous (IMHO).
