I guess I am always going to be looked down because of my lack of inhibition in using terms indiscretely
A lack of inhibition has caused no "down looking" on our forum that i've seen.
What does incur flames, chiding, and other less than enthusiastic replies is the posting of things like a "cobol file", kiddie chat-room text, laziness (unwillingness for folks to invest a bit of thought when building their topics). In a category all by itself is when a member decides to verbally abuse someone who is trying to help them. NOTE: Most of these do not apply to you
Because this forum is intended for students and other beginners, we ("the old ones" here) work hard to make consistent, correct use of the terminology. Once a bad idea/term takes hold, it is very difficult to replace with the proper concept.
Look around the forum for the number of "things" people want to do with "a JCL". . .
