Huqhox is on a distinguished road
I noticed the gradual uptake of 'mob' for a singular inhabitant on the forum and then have adopted it myself. I find 'monster' a very negative word, after all not all the mobs in the game are monstrous by any means.

From a technical background it also fits pleasingly into terms such as blob or glob where the 'ob' is just short for 'object'. So it could refer to 'monster object' which is essentially how mobs are represented in the code

Bottom line, I like it
