Nice! Do you know why your boss made that decision and was there a positive outcome from it?

If I recall correctly, it was around the time we'd just hired a new dev. Most of the acronyms we use are in reference to the websites we manage, so it was for clarity's sake. Once the new guy was used to the names, we reverted to using acronyms again. :)
