This whole thread wasn't meant as a criticism. I simply had the feeling some more german (influenced) words came up in recent works. I get the feeling that somehow you feel that you have to justify that or make clear that nothing the like was intended. Why is that so?
Huh? No, I was just using "roentgens" as an illustration of my point with regard to the kellicam issue. It's just coincidence that it was German. I didn't even know Karl Roentgen was German until I looked it up. I figured he was Dutch or something.

That's fine then. I just don't want to go on anybodies nerves here, being a member for a mere day
