Say what? was Re: galactic EMP

Maybe I'm missing something. Help me out here. Are people now calling
any large unpleasant burst of anything sourced from a galactic core
"EMP"? I am under the distinct impression that EMP means something
rather more specific than that.

It seems to me that a gamma photon burst would arrive some time before a
wave of other particles, the former possibly serving as a "warning" of
the latter, of utility potentially dubious. They could both be bad, and
either could induce EMP near/on Earth, depending on a host of factors.
