I never us "LO" outside of these lists. Well except maybe a DVD volume
title like "LO-NA-DVD-4.2.5", which needs abbreviations to fit
When abbreviations are "allowed" or needed, then I use LO, OOo, AOO,
MSO, and things like that.

On this list (a few others as well but esp. On this one) people call
LibreOffice "LO". We -sorry to take on my founder's hat here- never
called LibreOffice LO.
Historically the people who did were long time OpenOffice.org users
who were a bit skeptical of us at first and who felt necessary to
"format"LibreOffice in a way they thought was easier.
Now you will tell me that it is easier to type LO than it is with
LibreOffice. Perhaps. But everyone here writes MS Office...
Anyway the point I am trying to make is that LO does not mean
anything and sends the wrong message. We are not "low" , we are not
"hello", we are libre people. Ans when I say we I lean everyone
