You are entitled to your opinion, but I strongly feel you are wrong in this case. If you want to rely on a short, misleading definition from dictionary.com, then that is your perogative. I've already addressed the definition issue to you directly at length in another thread. Having a deeper understanding of the term and its use in computer science would help the quality of discussion.

Thanks,
