Obviously the case here.

GIven that most of us sling code and thus are quite familiar with the need 
for specificity, both at syntactic and semantic levels, it is rather 
dismaying to see how prevalent "loose language", overloaded/opaque personal 
definitions and vague conceptual idioms are when discussing topics like 
Objects at REST.

It's no wonder that the software world is in such a mess, and that the 
business folks, for the most part, ignore us. 

This has been a good thread, with some interesting insights from many 
quarters.  Time to give it a REST, at least from my end. ;-)
