re - You've pointed out no mistakes, there was no error in what I said about mass. - Wrong. I've explicity described the error you made.

You stated that whenever someone uses the term mass in GR that they always mean rest mass. I explained that this is incorrect for tqwo reasons.

(1) If you meant "mass of object moving in field" but neglected to mention it then you should have left my comment alone. Plus it's not correct. I've given you the most obvious example - Rindler. He has written one of the best texts in general relativity and whenever he uses the word mass it's rest mass.

(2) If you didn't mean that but anytime then,, whether you like it or not, people don't follow your advice. I've given you examples in that case too.

Why do you have such a problem with being corrected?
