Everyone is so eager to denounce a particular word. It is sort of like "He who must not be named" in the Harry Potter novels.

When someone jumps from a ship, what is the proper word to describe what happens next? Float? Fly? Drift?

It is odd when the press, villified for everything, reports precisely what happens ... and is still criticized.

Shrug. Cheers, Aidan
