"intuitive feeling" is a word I copied from your message. See above.

Yes, true. It links to a page that was /taken from/ the FAQ and then
moved to the other page for better readability. I will add that quote to
make you understand that better.

That's like saying one should not read Wikipedia because everyone can
edit it. You really enjoy twisting my words in my mouth.

The intention of an open source encyclopedia is that experienced people
can work on it and make corrections and additions where necessary. Just
like in Wikipedia, if any nonsense is added, there will be enough other
people to correct it.

WUT? We were using the word {pemHov} long before Okrand suggested {jul}.
We were using word incorrectly before Okrand clairifed them. How can
Okrand's punctuation be irrelevant? Are you drunk?
