No, I'm sure you never changed your nomenclature, but certainly there
is or least was some confusion. This was probably why I had difficulty with you
saying G/G* was 3rd person at the time - we had different
understandings of the terms.

My point of the post was simply to alert people to the fact that this
confusion did exist, and that care needs to be taken in interpreting
past writings. Hopefully moving forward we can eliminate contradictory
