'I Am Not An x' where x = Aerospace Engineer (IANAAE) or Archeologist (IANAA) or any specialized professional or hobbyist or religion.

This acronym is very predominant on Slashdot or newsgroups when people humbly reply their opinion in regards to the article or others. One puts IANAx before stating their position and helps the reader know that this is an opinion and not someone from such a field of study. It's pretty much a disclaimer like YMMV.

This is very much like the usage of IMO or IMHO.
