Apropos this, since, apparently, I have to spell this out: When I say vulcans, I mean vulcan species&culture as in NOT romulan species&culture. When Spock, in star trek XI says 'vulcans' he means vulcan species&culture aka the same thing.
Means but doesn't say. Maybe. Shall this be inferred where other thngs aren't supposed to be?
Anyhow. I'd like to apologize for my role in taking this conversation downhill. I do think you are dewmonstrably wroong, but I wish I had the basic smarts not to take the conversation in the direct that I did. I'm sorry.
