No - quiet desperation is the manner in which us English read the grammar of others

You can add IMO just to let everyone know that it's a matter of opinion, and even if you are very assured to the degree that you feel convinced, adding IMO is a way to acknowledge that it is an opinion and it will welcome others to present their alternate views.

IMO, it's not like it matters. In fact, colloquial language is brimming with meaningless, non-statement filler-phrases.

I've occasionally seen IMAO - In My Arrogant Opinion.

There's a famous saying, but no one remembers the second half of it:
"Opinions are like a**holes - everybody's got one, but nobody wants to look at the other guy's."

Excuse me but which new problems have occurred by people using IMO?

People use IMO / IMHO because the net is full of oversensitive people which will react like mentally retarded when confronted with someone not sharing their opinion. In the vast majority of cases using IMO / IMHO should be completely unnecessary but it's a way of telling the other net users that you are not one of those retarded and that you can deal with people having a different opinion.

Unnecessary yes, but causing new problems???

^ there is much merit in what the cranky Belgium dweller states. All these qualifiers at the end of written messages like IMO, IMHO etc seem to mirror the modern paranoia manifest in everyone and their dog prefacing any written statement with 'without prejudice' i.e. you cannot use what I have written against me in any subsequent court case.
This is usually spurious bollocks as the words will not act to automatically confer immunity to the communication

I use IMHO quite often, but not out of paranoia.
Why should it be, since it means, as we all know: In My Hyperintelligent Opinion WinkCool

It's just fluffy convention, a rhetorical device that some people find useful.  Just because it doesn't add any meat to the sentence doesn't mean it shouldn't be there.

IMO having a strong opinion on IMO is just being overly opinionated. IMO those people need to get a life

What I hate is when I see it in a review;  for chrissake, we know it's your opinion, that'swhat a review is.   It's even worse coming from a collaborator, it's like saying  " I'm not really sure if I'm right or if you'll agree or if my thoughts are valid or how this comes off or anything, but here's what I think.  Heh. "
