for mine

Posted by Michael Sinclair on October 19, 2006

I have a question about "for mine".

You see this on a lot of chat forums. ie - "Dogs are better than cats for mine."

OR

"For mine, dogs are better than cats." (Which happens to be true!)

It seems to replace 'in my opinion' but it doesn't seem to make any literary sense. I would love to hear if this is correct english or if it's an utter bastardisation of the language and where it originated from. (One guess!!!)
