Bryan on the essence of the word “fine”:
How can we resurrect the word ‘fine’? I just received an email from a PR saying ‘Okay, fine’ and I immediately assumed I had offended her, though I cannot imagine how. ‘Fine’ has come to suggest either a flounce or something not quite good enough – ‘Yes, it’s fine’ means ‘it barely passes muster’ or ‘I lack the energy to put this horseshit right’. But this, surely, is not what ‘fine’ is for; surely is should stand for something wonderful, elegant, superior. You don’t agree? Fine.
His last line concludes what I believe should be the only use of “fine” in this world, as in… “She’s so fine,” said with gusto.

I certainly believe that they made the right choice with the HOPE “O”.
