Is Being Called A Frontline "H.O" A No?


The most illustrious and sorely missed blogger, Prettidolli, first brought awareness of the duty, obligation and serious dedication of what it means to be a Frontline Diva when she wrote the "10 Commandments of Frontline H.O.ism" in the year 2006.

The term "Frontline H.O." was coined by Prettidolli as well, she explained that a "H.O." was the acronym for HIGHMAINTENANCE OVERACHIEVER. Since then Frontline H.O. has become a part of the Carnival vocabulary though I am sure many of you were unaware of what exactly the H.O. stood for.

It has been recently brought to my attention that some Frontliners do not like being called a H.O., acronym or not and would prefer to be called something else even though a HO should never be confused with a H.O.!

So, my question today is do you take offense with the acronym "Frontline H.O.", should the H.O. be retired from use in reference to the Frontliner and what should it be replaced with?
