…although with a bit of searching, it doesn’t take long to figure out what all the initialisms stand for:

  • CFP = Certified Financial Planner
  • CLS = Community Legal Services
  • FID = Flame Ionization Detector
  • CWV = Catholic War Veterans

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.

“Nothing is stopping you from doing the same.”

…if you’re also a white man.

(Otherwise it’s hard enough making a career out of doings things you are totally qualified for.)

Aw, that’s so kind of you—thank you so much, Jen!
