    •  I get it... (0+ / 0-)

      Three letters = less space in the headline.  As a former headline writer, I can't help but pick nits.  There several possibilities that would have conveyed the same sentiment and perhaps even been more informative.

      The only reason I bring it up at all is because I think it's an excellent diary-- well written on an important topic.  I'm also quite certain that, yes, even though this is the internets, there are still lots and lots of people out there who have no idea what "Pwn" is and may skip it because of a careless misspelling in the headline.
