I am not sure I can survive another three and a half weeks of this thread.

What I have seen from Dan in this thread unfortunately confirms my belief
the PR is required. Note that I said, required, not justified. It would
have been justified a long time ago.

Dan has created a situation where we have to choose between his
contributions and the contributions of the people he would drive away
through his behavior.

If indeed the terminology issue were 'trivial and unimportant' then why
spend so much time sabotaging it?
