Re: Selecting Crowns -- Definitions

Alfredo defines a number of terms (all identified by using initial caps),
then defines some standard (according to him) arguments, and continues to

Alfredo, I hope you will not take this the wrong way, but you have
not clarified things with your definitions.  The above is almost
incomprehensible BECAUSE of your definitions.  You have created jargon
that nobody will understand without a cue sheet, and reduced an issue
of significant intellectual interest (and strong emotional response)
into meaningless gibberish.

Which is quite a feat, as it turns out :^)
