Looking at those topic titles, they don't make sense to me

What it the difference between 'Protection Accuracy' and 'Legitimate Accuracy'

And then there is this 'Total Accuracy' were there is some sort of fudge factor to come up with 'Total Accuracy' ?

Surely we should only be concerned with Protection Accuracy, whatever that means.

It also seems strange with different results for AVG.
