    I agree with you. I never stated that this is negative or derogatory.

    However, the name of a script is not unimportant, especially if a certain
    name is not accurate or not specific for a given script.

    I understand your intention and I agree with you. From this point I am not
    going to response to any naming-related statements.

    Best Regards
