Over on the Orgy forum I have a thread where I talk about strength training, and this guy Mark Rippetoe whose exercise program I am currently using. Here's something from his site that's relevant to Insomnia:

Mark Rippetoe wrote:It is a matter of pride to me that I can go through an entire weekend seminar without once using the “C”-word. Out of a concern for my participants and my reputation I fastidiously avoid using the term “core” when referring to the trunk musculature or the stability thereof. I am so utterly goddamn tired of hearing about the “core” from members of the lay public, infomercialers, doctors, PTs, ATCs, personal trainers, and strength coaches that as a form of protest I refuse to use the term at all. That is why it will appear in this article only in scare quotes. “Core.” “Core,” dammit.


That is the exact same way I feel about "indies". When I see the term written without scare quotes I feel as if a gross injustice has been perpetrated. Ultimately, I prefer not to see it at all, but if it has to be used, I will forever insist on the scare quotes.
