sco++ is also known as Scott. Recently, Scott ran in the elections for
part of the BYU UUG leadership (Vice President, I believe). The
election involved some good-natured mock mud slinging, during which
one of Scott's opponents pointed out the similarity between Scott's
name and SCO. Scott "embraced and extended" the jibe by adopting the
handle sco++. It's stuck ever since.
