Ah yes, this reminds me of the old Gershwin classic --
George says Ceratopia, I say Ceratopia;
Jeff says Predentata, I say Ornithischia;
Ken says Saurischiformes, I say Saurischia --
Let's call the whole thing off!
(If there is a serious point to this post at all, it may be this:
there's enough real confusion in this field as it is, without people
introducing artificial confusion with alternative names -- however
much sense those names make in isolation. As Henry Spencer has so
appositely commented, "Your creativity is better used in solving
problems than in creating beautiful new impediments to understanding."
JMHO, of course.)
