BO is an important acronym these days, and to technical folks it means "Business Object".

Maybe it's generational, but whenever I use/hear/write/read the acronym BO, I immediately flash back to summer camp, where BO (Body Odor) was NC (Not Cool).

I think the reason some acronyms persist is that they are used in the application code. In several APIs I've documented, BO or bo was used as a prefix or suffix for all business objects. So, there were good reasons for using the acronym throughout the documentation.
