Ironic that despite the above even you refer to "modern basics" in some posts ;-)
If you fail to understand why this isn't "semantics" this discussion can't lead anywhere.
Also why do you find my use of modern BASICs to represent the superset of BASIC inspired languages ironic? You can't have read what I actually wrote.
BTW I like BASIC, I learned programming in BASIC and think extended BASICs can be useful. That doesn't mean my complaints are mere semantics...
