Ditto on that.

Could you further elaborate on this, please.

I would love to hear the stories.

It's ok if you cannot give. I won't sue you in court.

I'm not interested in "the name game" either, but would love to use common terms for the purpose of discussion. It's easier so that others could be "in the same frequency", whether we use what the locals use, English names or general form as identifier to what is being referred.

It would be nice if we could have pictures of these form.
