You should not feel any shame. That was not my intention. My research is unique so far even if in some elements shared with some, very few people. But I would be absolutely and deeply hurt if I had made you feel ashamed. I think it is the Mets that should be ashamed of even dreaming of banning a word from our language because it should be their sole privilege to use it. The Mets, I bet, should get slightly more humble, if not humbler.

But Allan that was a privilege to exchange those few words. And I am back on my wild goose chase, though in the mountains where I live it would be rather wild deer or wild boar.
