Defining terms

(sorry if this annoys anyone, but this is one thing that I need to make clear)

A word is essentially a name given to an idea. In debate, you are free to use whatever word you wish for whatever concept you wish provided you make clear what you mean with that word (in other words, "defining your terms").

I don't think anyone cares anymore Kurt. Sorry, but that's just how I feel at this time. I believe we don't necessarily need a thread started to cover this once again from the last threads that you started only to tell others they are wrong in a unconstructive manner.

This thread has been reported and most likely will be closed as I asked you nicely as a Moderator of this site to drop such debates, etc.
