David does have a point, while this discussion has been amusing and
might actually trigger a new term or two, adding geno babble to
descriptions of genetic genealogy will only make things harder for
those trying to understand it all and will not assist them with
discussing it with others who never heard the terms before and will
think they are inventing things as they go along. Especially if that
person is a genetics expert.
A better effort who be put to providing clear, simple explanations for
what transpires. Personnally, I have enough words, it's just using
them that is the challenge. Adding more words that require additional
definition really does not help;-)
