In specialised contexts, to be sure. But that was _not_ relevant to the
context of my post. Which means you were wasting my time -- and
everyone else's. But presumably it made you feel (briefly) significant.
And posting annoying-git irrelevant objections to other people's
explanatory posts presumably doesn't bother you a bit.
So, in that sense, you win. Happy day.
