We're professional communicators, right? Can we please stop contributing
to the misuse and misunderstanding of "learning curve"? 

A steep learning curve is one on which you acquire lots of knowledge (Y
axis) in a short period of time (X axis). Something that takes a long
time to learn has a shallow (or long) learning curve.

Pedantically yours,
