This is a valid argument; but it is an argument, which we can accept
only on matters 'oqranD has already clarified.

For example, if someone said, we need to have a word for
"exaggerate", then of course he would need to listen, that 'oqranD
decided to use the bo'Dagh phrase.

Or, an even better example, if someone said we need a word for
"curious", he would need to be reminded, that 'oqranD was asked and
said to use {neHqu'}.

But now, I need to continue another ancient cat story, which I'm writing.
