For the most part, I like the way you think. However, you do overlook a very significant fact which permuates this forum: no one bothers to define the words they use.

It seems that they all believe words have meaning. They don't! The only meaning any word can have is a meaning agreed upon by the communicators and when ever the agreement vanishes, the communication vanishes with it.

Most of the arguments on this forum can be traced to lack of communication. For the most part it is entertaining double talk.

That is one reason mathematics is so important: a much higher proportion of the terms represent agreed upon concepts.

Have fun -- Dick
