A few of Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty's comments on ice calving:
-
With calving you don't get more than a small difference in the endpoint. You don't 'calve' a chunk of ice 2.7 square miles in extent.

-
I objected to calving as a description of the breakup of several square miles of glacier. It is still the wrong term. That is truth, not lie.

-
And breaking away of large blocks of ice or disintegration of large areas of ice sheet can hardly be considered 'ablation'. Look it up, dimwad.

-
By 'calving' the phrase arose because it was a small bit of a much larger mass. Like a cow having a calf. I have seen calving used to describe the breakoff of large ice islands, but consider it to be a misuse of the term.

That said, the use of words is arbitrary and I cannot say that the public agrees. They tend to use whatever word they can think of in similar contexts and the breakoff of a large ice island is 'similar' to calving, just on more like 'cowing' where the 'new child' is as big as or nearly as big as the mother.. I think my point has merit but won't argue it. As I said in my explanation..
-
That I state the truth and shame the devil still bugs Dirtling badly. That he can quote these correct statements as if they were 'proof of insanity' just makes me wonder about his own.

Don't fight it Earthling. Senility was bound to catch up to you.

Yep, ad hominem is all Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty has left.
Meanwhile, I have lots of his bloopers:
LessFact:
Even epystimologists[sic] cannot say that their dictionaries are accurate.

NobodyYouEverWantToKnow:
You claim to be all knowing about epistemology[sic] of all words, yet you get this so wrong.

LessFact:
It was not a 'mistake'. It was a fact. Even when the first dictionary was being compiled the epistimologist[sic] had to choose between many spellings.
