Once again....Oh my god, still you cannot adress the point. Whether or not you agree with my word choice is NOT, I repeat, NOT, the point. I already provided you with definitions of the word required in which it is used as a synonymous with expected, custumary, etc.<quoted text>
My only point was that you used the word required to describe tipping and then when you are corrected you revert to your old game of saying that people don't understand what you post.......LOL
Yes we all know that you were wrong when you said that tipping is required.....
Or how about this from wikipedia. a tip is not required by law but ".... failing to give an adequate tip when one is expected is a serious faux pas, and may be considered very miserly, a violation of etiquette, or unethical." In other words you could say a tip is required by custom or ettiquette unless the service is bad, but not by law.
Nevertheless, the use of the word "required" is not the issue. As is your usual pattern you have bogged this conversation down in a whole bunch of semantic nonsense that has nothing to do with the point at hand.
