Some members of the signage panel try to use 'half-length' to justify  
some of their arguments.  Leaving KG out of it, I say to them, "But  
what is half-length?  I don't hear any in your speech - can you  
demonstrate?  What's the evidence for it?" - and the answers get  
avoided like the plague.  They've been fed it, believe it, don't  
understand it and don't bother using it - except to sway an argument.
