Seems like the thread has served its purpose.  Everyone is worn down,
and we have concluded that everyone has the right to declare anything
a standard at any time.  Everyone else has a right to choose to apply
that standard or not.

RICK:  I did not miss it.  That msg was the basis for his proposing the
compromise in this forum of using the adjectives to at least clarify the
different usages of the word "standard" and not have to argue about right vs
wrong.  You recall that I replied applauding that proposal (so we could end
this
