I love this post. I join you in the crusade against jargon. When I am in a conversation and someone uses an acronym or word I don't understand, I ask them to explain. I don't care if they think I'm stupid or uninformed -- and I hope that it causes them to rethink their casual use of insider language.

Sometimes, I do think that people use acronyms or jargon because they're so used to it in their ordinary speech. Those are the people we can win over to our cause: the quest for clear, accessible language.
