 I was not correcting the terminology, but trying to point out the difference
 in the "opening" that you were trying to describe. A split goes all the way
 through the post.  A seasoning check is only an opening in the wood that
 does not go through the post. The structural capacity of the post is
 effected more by a split. Seasoning checks have very little or no effect on
 the strength. >>
