I'm sorry to have been unclear when I wrote the following:
"...we use "rug" (and many other words) very loosely and generally understand it to include anything that might be advertised or described in HALI. And then we complain about the errors in books!"
I was not suggesting that HALI's guys don't know a rug from a chyrpy, they are very clear in the statement of their scope. I was trying to point out that we call ourselves rug collectors, and in so doing we use the word "rug" to mean all the stuff that HALI includes in their pages. My point was to note how sloppily we use language at times, even as we complain about errors in our books.
Regards, and apologies for my lack of clarity.
