I'm not suggesting that I was disturbed by those words.  There have
been other threads about Alcor advising careful word choice (or
discussion topics) because the archives are public, indexed &
discoverable by those outside "our group."

I also wouldn't want to make a big deal about it either.  In the vein
of the Max More Turing test, I would not have expected real Max to use
that colloquialism.  Maybe I should be less sensitive to writing
