True. You'll notice the continuous/discontinuous subject comes
up everytime someone new joins the list. Those words try to
convey an easy concept that all of us know well but no one can
quite say perfectly with a single english word. Let us know if you
have a favorite alternative adjective.

Meanwhile any use of the word continuous is like shark bait
around here.
