Such name calling isn't taken well regardless of where it is used.
Please refrain from expressing such personal beliefs about anyone or
anything to this and any other list you may subscribe to. The English
language is an ever evolving and fluid language and often a redefinition
occurs due to the human nature of being lazy. I completely understood
Steven meant "email addresses" with his shortened form to "email" and
would even use it the way Steven did myself.
