What is the substantive difference?
No, you claimed that I quoted Humpty Dumpty, not that I said something that you found to be similar. Or do you not think that words have meaning?

Also, please justify your claim that there is no substantive difference between making up definitions of words, and using words as they are defined in the dictionary.
