Harold! Harold, Harold:

You're like a hound dog with a bone who won't let 
go. When you're right, that tenaciousness is good, 
but when you are wrong, ...

First of all, we are not impressed with your 
external sources.

Secondly, MW(D is used many times in Tanakh for 
appointed time and/or place. That an appointed time 
may correspond to a season is coincidence, not part 
of the word's definition. That you insist that it 
is part of the word's definition goes against good 
lexicographic practices.

Third, your use of poetry to insist on your 
definition shows that your argument is weak, at 

There are times to argue for your view, and there 
are times when having the last word doesn't work. I 
have the fault of wanting the last word too often, 
and it looks as if you have the same problem.
