As there were some messages continued on a smaller private-to email
"group". I created an offlist for those who wish to continue to share
their thoughts on this subject:  Especially since
in my opinion we just had one of this interesting conversion points
where people realized they need to talk aboutthe different meaning and
understandings for each term. Anyway I hope those who want can opt-in
to discuss without emoitionialising the topic - vanity or being angry
about it. Those not interested won't thus be pestered about it.

Personally I'd like much more to talk about some form of continue
anyway :-) Since that bites me every time requiring some quirky
workarounds :-)
