My Dear dhimmi no more,

Yes, they are very big words for the person who does not understand them. I hope your grasp of Arabic better than your English. When you don't understand a word, do you research the meaning? What do you do when have an Arabic word you don't understand? Guess? Did you ask for clarification? You walked into a something you don't understand. Its OK, we all do it at times. It's called bull sh**ing. Would any of your work standup in a refereed journal? Doesn't look like it. You have too many assumptions and leaps of logic. You said you publish. What are your reviews? Did anyone bother to review?

Now how do you feel?

All kidding aside, I believe that you fully understand the meaning of all the words and intent in the post with the possible exception of toponomy which is the mess you walked into without knowing. Your response should have been: "Sorry, maybe the example I selected was not the best. Here is another…" End of story. I also suspect that that your formal work is quite good. Don't get sloppy in your posts. Drop the attitude and sarcasm and don't stretch to reach your point. Creditability is paramount. This conflict is real.

Have a nice day
