you persist in deliberately using a different meaning of the word
'discrimination' even after i have pointed out which meaning i was using
(which shouldn't have even been necessary - the meaning was inherent in
the context). the word does have several different valid meanings.

if you have no better argument for your cause than to be pedantic to an
imbecilic degree then you should just give up now and save yourself the
public humiliation.
