The thread title says it all.
This is actually a common misconception.If we are asking rhetorical questions......
Why a software malfunction is called a bug? Because in the early computer days, an insect found its way into a pair of relay contacts, preventing from making electrical contact, although the relay itself was properly closing.
Similarly, many of our words in the technical jargon were coined for similar reasons. I can see from the photos provided by Bertus, that with a little imagination one can imagine these boards as miniature warrior shields.
