Weird.  I've just double-checked via the Web archive.]

I'm _mystified_ as to why Rich thought I was trying to "recall" anything,
and this more than anything else is why I feared I might have somehow 
utterly failed to articulate my point.

The point is that -- obviously -- you could so easily and very naturally put
a variant form of this group's name "on your resume" (it not mattering
much _what_ that variant is, or whether it's "official", whatever that
means) that apparently this objection, like the equally
meaningless-in-this-context phrase "unprofessional", is a symbolic
codephrase that, when you pass it through a semantics-detection filter,
boils down to "I just don't like it".

I can respect "I just don't like it."
Saying "I just don't like it" has the advantage of brevity, plus averting
confusion, wasted energy, and the need to spend time debunking
nonsensical symbolic justifications.
