Why is 'Elo' as in Elo rating system sometimes capitalised to 'ELO' when it's a last name and not an acronym? I notice people don't say GLICKO, for example.
Some (heavily downvoted) reddit posts:
- Stop capitalizing Elo
- PSA: "Elo" is named after the mathematician Arpad Elo, it is not an acronym and should not be capitalized, e. g. "ELO"
Other uses of ELO
'You'll benefit from the course if your ELO rating is at least 900' and 'This course is designed for players who know the fundamentals of chess. They have an ELO rating somewhere in range of 800-1500.'
Edit: I am asking why people do things in a certain way. why opinion based? sounds pretty factual to me: I'm not asking what should be the case. I'm asking why certain things are the way they are.
