But THANK YOU
for making my point clear as glass for me!
Just as "BBC" and "SBC", etc. has become part of the vernacular, so has "400M". It has NADA
to do w/"correctness"- neither factory has used these terms "officially"- it has EVERYTHING to do w/RECOGNITION.
Show me ONE guy who doesn't understand "400M" and I'll show you a tyro of epic proportion. Same as w/"SBC" or "BBC".
- You badmouthed Wiki pretty good. I am a Crankshaft Coalition Wiki "editor"- and PROUDLY
so. What of it? So are many
members here- that's how good, reliable, peer-reviewed info becomes available for public use. And, I see YOU are also a wiki “editor”, albeit w/but one to your credit. Better than none, I suppose. LOL
