Hmmmmm. So when somebody gives a new meaning to a word that I thought I
knew the meaning of, and I cut and paste from a dictionary to demonstrate
that the word doesn't really have this new meaning, I'm being "pedantic".

Unfortunately, I don't have a thick skin. Never have. Probably never
will. So, before I say something I'll regret (though perhaps I already
have), I'm going to bow out.
Have a nice night, all...
