Marketing is rarely about truth. While you are correct that "Reactive"
programming is not specific to Functional Programming, I believe it is
being conflated with it by industry and non-FPers.

Anyway, it was just a comment / observation I've had. As Ben said, we
should steer clear of anything "Nooooooooooooo" related.

Marketing is hard. People are confusing. Sloganeering is an art. NoOO is
doomed to produce too many memes. NotOnlyOO makes me think of YOLO for some
