More to the point, names aren't necessarily supposed to be words.  So
the attempted rebuttal is moot.

Um, thanks, I think?  At my age, it's probably too late to attempt to
implement any such plan.  Furthermore, once the grey hairs appear (as
they're just beginning to in my case), the proposition of growing up
starts to seem much less appealing.  :)

Anyway, to get back on topic for a sec, I'm not a grammar nazi.  I
didn't object to "homepage", I merely expressed reservations.  And if
I really cared, I would have offered some alternatives.
