Genuine question: why is it that, in web performance circles in general, whenever three words are put into a sequence, they are instantly replaced by their initial letters?

It seems very exlusionary to anyone without the decoder ring.

I fully agree with you. I really do wish things were clearer and more accessible. We did put a lot of thought into clear names and definitions for all the metrics. But almost everyone prefers the acronyms.
