There is no need to get into a terminalogy war. Tell me what is wrong. When someone says "My hard drive is broken", they are offering an opinion without
having a clue what is happening. If my car is broken, I don't tell the mechanic about the parts I think are broken. I describe what is happening. When
a person opines out of ignorance, they risk sending the repair person down the wrong path. Just describe the problem.

whacked me. He told me to get in the office and stay there. Some nutbag had killed a policeman a few yards from the office.
We even debated whether the office windows were bulletproof.
That same year, we were locked in again when some nutbag decided to shoot up a bunch of classrooms.

This was more difficult than working with the cougar who kept talking about meeting me in motels near her house. I passed.
