mutual respect is more readily recognizable when it is expressed freely
than when it is adhered to because it is prescribed.
We're not talking about speaking languages not understood by one
another. Take for example a couple of titles that have to do with the
list topic: Wu:rthwein calls his book _The Text of the Old Testament_
whereas P. Kyle McCarter, Jr. has written _Textual Criticism: Recovering
the Text of the Hebrew Bible_. Either of these titles is equally
understandable; so why the fuss?
I think it is probable that the majority of those on the list
would like, as I would, to save the bandwidth we're using on this debate
for matters that are more on topic.
