I appreciate you sharing your interpretation of the term, as well as your opinion about how you feel it has been applied here.

I acknowledge that SWK staff has decided to include the term "intellectually dishonest" in its list of "forbidden words".

Quite right.

Thanks.
Right on the money once again. Thanks for your post.
