And you forgot the part about how I attack everyone personally, too.

Oh, wait a minute, that's not me that does that...

BTW, you might want to look in the mirror. My comment wasn't "political," it was factual. There are many, many, many architectural terms that are arcane at the least, and most of them derive from the Latin, such as "fenestration" or "reglet." There are also many that are cognates of words in common usage, such as "groin." Thus it isn't unusual to have someone be confused at some of the terms.

However, since you're "stuck on politics" yourself, you jump to the conclusion that my innocent comment was itself political. That says much more about you than me.
