If I or anyone else tries to redefine it at this late date is just as valid (and silly) as saying bluegill are not fish because they swim in fresh water and I want fish to only refer to salt water vertebrates. My attempt to narrowly redefine the word fish in the face of centuries of use would be ludicrous.
As I thought I made perfectly clear, by my use of quotations around the words, I was using a specific definition for that word, MY PERSONAL definition.
It's not relevant what the root of the word is. I could have just as easily used "$t#K*T" in my sentence, because I provided the definition for the word I had framed in quotation marks.
And I was not trying to redefine the word. Did I say that I was? Clearly not. So again, I wish people on this topic could read, hear, understand, and reply to, what is ACTUALLY SAID, not what they wish the person had said or hoped they might have intended to say, just to fan the flames of this debate even further. I do not understand why people can't simply have dialogue on this topic.
