Thanks you all, for sharing your views. It´s worth noticing that the source of the excerpt was Wikipedia (maybe naively I thought it was more accurate and less biased).
The point is, I am trying to offer an explanation as detached as possible to a question, only going to the word itself. Hence my haste in explaining that it was not my words, but the ones from Wikipedia.
It´s a policy of mine not let questions unanswered, so it was answered just for discussion´s sake. So, it may seem that I am not politically correct. I am not, in fact, in the sense of answering tricky words and questions (it´s just to make a reading at some
threads of old, ancient ones); but not being uncivil and not being urbane.
And thanks specially to you Dale, that is giving us such open and insightful opinions about such tricky subject, I must admit.
