I don't like this word at all, it doesn't sound like what it means and I use optimistic so who needs it? I noticed 19th century people like US Grant used it alot, maybe before optimistic became popular. I always have to look it up when I read it and am pretty sure the first definition I read of it said it meant something amounting to indifferent or ok with things, not optimistic. Too complicated, too Latin and has no zero subjective meaning.
