What does AFWIW stand for?

Anyway, for what it's worth

Someone who thinks their opinion isn't worth much might preface it with AFWIW (anyway, for what it's worth). You're most likely to receive this acronym in messages sent by friends, family members, and co-workers, who want to share their opinion but think it won't bring you much comfort.

You may also encounter AFWIW in online forums, when another user is providing their opinion on a topic. In this context, AFWIW is often used similarly to YMMV, to point out that the poster's opinion may differ from yours.
