That 3 point answer on the Help page does not mention "chores" or "chore", and was given specifically in reply to Tim Mensch's "... if your goals are to find the languages that perform the best."

The words "chore" and "chores" appear 5 times on the 3,500 word Help page.

The words "chore" and "chores" appear in 5 of 42 answers.

Of those 5 answers, 4 are simple variations of - "Because I want to do fewer chores not more! Why don't you use our measurement scripts and publish measurements for..." (Saying it once wasn't enough to get the message across.)
