Why Wasn't Ruby 3 Faster?

I’m seeing a lot of disappointment about the speed of Ruby 3 out there. I think there are a lot of reasons for that, and I think they’re worth looking at.

So: why wasn’t Ruby 3 faster? Did it break its promise? (Spoiler: I don’t think so, but I understand why some people do.)
