The definition you quote above was from a question by Mr. Butler; I
care now, because by quoting the definition itself out of context,
evading the question itself, and not even making any attempt to
argue with the definition, you have shown the level of intellectual
integrity I can expect from your future arguments and how seriously
I should take any future posts from you.

In case you missed it, Mr. Butler's question was:
