Excuse me, Peter, but I am not interested in any kind of
I'm-right-you're-wrong pissing contest. I am not interested in the
word "distort" or in bandying it back and forth with you. I will
discuss the text of the definitions if, and only if, you will agree
to assist, productively and courteously, in an effort to rewrite the
definitions so that they are both useful and accurate. That has been
my position all along.
