Must we use the 'o' in the above abreviations? How many 'HoE' jokes will we endure?

/me suggests the following

and I thought you are selling a HoE! Shame shame on you to trick me to click on your topic.

I like the o better.... and for the rest of you.... notice this is under general =P

I thought CBF was the official abbreviation?

Now, the spellchecker doesn't like plurals of abbreviations however.

Well.. CBF might be the <i>official</i> abbreviation... but CoBF is more used... It's like how the <i>official</i> abbreviation for a ToJ is TKJ... but almost everyone refers to it as a ToJ

i understand HoE and maybe CoBF being changed, but whats wrong with HoD?

I think people put the "o" in because without it you'd have words without vowels. Most catch acronyms sounds like a real word Ex. "SCUBA, DARE, and KISS".
So in short, the English language is used to this concept of pronounceable acronym.
