Abbreviations I use in e-mail

In any sphere of activity, there are abbreviations and initialisations that will be understood by all. As a Web geek, things like AFAICT and IMO need little explanation. But, well, sometimes they do need expanding a little. So here's a guide to the abbreviations I (and others) commonly use in e-mail.

+ve
positive, as in “that's a very +ve comment…” (I can't recall using -ve but its meaning will be obvious)
AFAICT
as far as I can tell, as in, “AFAICT, no one had the idea before you…”
AFAIK
as far as I know, as in “AFAIK, she left the country but she may be back by now…”
AIUI
as I understand it, as in “AIUI, that's what that means, yes…”
btw
by the way, as in “btw that's really useful feedback…”

See below
ICYMI
in case you missed it, as in “ICYMI <link to something I think you'll find interesting>”
IMO
in my opinion, as in “IMO this is a really good idea…”
IMHO
in my humble opinion - the more humble version of IMO
IIRC
if I recall correctly, as in “IIRC you first suggested that last week…”
POV
point of view, as in, “from my POV, this is a really good idea…”
tbh
to be honest, as in, “I wish I'd thought of that tbh.”
WDYT?
what do you think?, as in, “WDYT of this proposal?”
wrt
with respect to, as in, “this makes a lot of sense wrt what we said last time…”
