Re: "Shinto" or "Shin Tao"?

Hi Maggie, I guess perhaps it wasn't clear to some of us (perhaps a lack of reading skills on our part) that you had acknolowged the mistake. I at least, had the impression that in the face of mounting evidence, you were still defending your original position.

One thing I will often do, is to pose questions, avoiding statements of fact unless I'm sure, as I did here:

I believe you. I'm willing to admit I was wrong(I've said this 5million times) but I gave my source for why I chose to spell it the way I did.

I have a really high tolerance for misspelling and grammar issues actually. It may come from working with children. I also used to work in Brazil as missionary with children, and their English was worse than my own. Either way, I've grown to be cool so long as I understand what some one is saying.
