    Here's is a definition of nationalism at  four levels of common useage. Why you feel the need to go beyond the normal and generally accepted definaition of the word as I used it in 1., smacks of trying to make an issue where no issue should exist. This is not the first time when something innocent was said , that Alex took offense. Others may recall his great upset when a Swastika was mentioned when discussing a Kreigsmariie sextant. What absurdity.

    Ahem. Alex Eremenko is most certainly not guilty of nationalism. Perhaps you are unaware that this word has a specific --and usually negative-- political meaning. He might be a less than perfect bargain-hunter, but that's no crime! :-)
