Three Sins of Authors in Computer Science and Math

Three Sins of Authors in Computer Science and Math is a great article taking the wind out of the sails of some really pretentious writers of what is, frankly, complete bollocks, even if you can understand the field.
I did like the variation on TLAs that were mentioned: Really Bad Acronyms, or FBAs, are spawned by FNPLs (Nerdy Project Leaders) when naming new systems.  Having discussed TLAs (Three Lettered Acronyms), XTLAs (eXtended TLAs) and VLTLAs (Very Long TLAs) in the past, this made me chuckle.
