We often see IMO, in my opinion, or IMHO, in my humble opinion, in posts. Is that necessary? If opinions expressed are not yours, whose are they? Really, has you spouse ever said "honey, I want you to log on that website thingy and tell your cyberbuds what I think of that latest Mule release."? Save space and bandwidth for future generations!

...most of the time that is meant as a disclaimer saying that it's not being represented as fact... as opposed trying to differentiate it from someone else's opinion.

Exactly. As opposed to stating it as a point-blank fact. Just a form of politeness.

imHo... hehe, I read that as "I'm Ho"... That big H threw me off

I do use imo quite often, though whenever I use imho I always think of "honest" instead of "humble"... but thats neither here nor there...

I appreciate that you two are humble, an admirable trait. I guess I give most readers credit for being able to differentiate statements of fact from those of opinion. I actually thought a reply would be, "what are you some uptight HS English teacher?"

Assuming The PM's having another bad day , I'll save him the trouble and retrieve his opinion for him (boldface in the original):
quote:
quote:
]Again, I don't know about the concept of the universal right to anything for lesser animals (any animal besides people). I don't want to interfere negatively with an animal's life if I can help it, but I just wouldn't say it has "rights." The human species, in contrast, does have rights.
Peter, obviously your opinion as voiced in my excerpt of your larger quote is a popular one, and uncontroversial. But I'm curious how it is that you can assert it like some universal law without even lip service to the notion that it's your opinion ?
How is it that you have such certitude about who in the natural world has and doesn't have rights?

Unless, that is, you see the whole concept of rights as flowing from humanity and applicable only to humanity. Because if you think that rights are by and for humans alone, then it could logically follow that animals have none -- it's strictly a juridical, human concept. But if you think there's such a thing as rights that are divine, inalienable, and flow from God or some higher law beyond human jurisprudence, then I wonder where you get your authoritative insight into God's intentions? Might it not be more humble to reserve the possibility that you don't know God's intentions? And to signal that in your sentence constructions with a simple "in my opinion"?
No.

By the way, Brock, I scoured this response both in January and today but can't find where the phrase is being used in the manner suggested, or demanded, by its proponent.

wow peter... you get in the strangest conversations...

imo ... rights are a human concept, and so is god... the idea that gods "intentions" or whatever you would like to refer to them as are facts, is a fallacy (facts must be able to be proven, faith does not require this). The statement above would give undue weight to that persons opinion (or faith for the religiously inclined) and as such both sides of the argument would need a qualifier such as "imo" (if needed by either side at all)...

disclaimer: I have no idea what context the above conversation took place in. Nor do I care.

I think it's to pacify the general population by not pissing anyone off by stating your opinion. It's ok to say how you feel or what you believe. If someone takes offense or gets pissed, that's their problem. More people should live that way and we would not have the BS we have now.

In my less than humble opinion, yes, sometimes it is necessary. And that IMHO. LOL. LOL.
