Because you are knowledgable in many historical and language matters and are
wont to refer to Wikipedia.

I read that article mainly because I had heard only vague things about limbo and
wanted to get a little background before saying something completely incorrect,
even if I was really only joking about the popular (and no doubt inaccurate)
meaning of "limbo".

Thinking of you in that regard was secondary, and only because, as I say, you
are one who is both knowledgable and wont to correct inaccuracies even in
non-technical matters.  And yes, you can properly take that as a compliment,
from someone who is also sometimes interested in non-software topics.

We do agree, I fear.
