(cutaia), No, actually, and I don't think that word means what you think it means. Semantics denotes word selection, and the connotations thereof. There's a significant difference between a "year end wrap up" (and if that's what it is, call a spade a spade) and a "best of" series. The former implies aggregate (e.g. Here is a list of the things we wrote in February), while the latter implies a qualitative value judgment (e.g. Here is a list of THE BEST things we wrote in February). They don't mean the same thing in the least, which is what your "that's just semantics" comment seems to imply. Allison,A fair point, to be sure; it was a busy year at the start. However that's a beast of a textwall to read through. Kudos to you for reading and responding to reader feedback though.
