     How about you acknowledge that you did not have much of an argument in the first place and that it was shot down (correctly)? There is no demerit to correcting oneself. There is to ranting on.

     Listening to someone trying to muddle together logical and physical models gets old fast. I prefer more precise language.

     If you want imprecise, talk to end users. They usually do not know computers very well, if at all. There is no need to wonder why it often takes a long time to get things straight with them.
