I think the people that are using it as a generic term basically borrowed
it from its original description of 3D's machines. Is it copy righted?
who knows. My response was not to the use of the word but rater the reason
the group was formed in the first place. If you joined the Moose Club, then
why couldn't you go to the Elk meetings too? Because its a different
organization! This all seems silly but isn't it relevant. Maybe you should
start a grass roots effort to form a new multi system group.
and there is no need to excuse yourself, really!!
Have a great day
