Asking that question implies that you wish to subscribe to some definition and hence to any derivations from that definition. Is that your intention? That seems rather like asking what's a nice religion that I can believe in?

On the other hand the idea of a thread that starts with some agreed definitions is extremely novel for this group. Mostly we seem to like to skip that bit so that we can equivocate and talk at cross-purposes for weeks on end.
