As near as I can figure out, IMHO is "In My Hunble Opinion". But that's
just my own idea, so maybe it means something else.

I posted a kinda meant to be funny post about Durkheim's use of the term
"thing" in one of his works, but actually he does associate it with
things (there it is again!) of a phenomenal nature. I guess some of his
attitudes and inconsistencies got to me so I felt the need to publicly
poke fun at him! Oh what we'll do to dead people!

Hope this helped,
