As a side note, I think comments like "calling them dumb is giving them too much credit" are pretty obnoxious, especially when referring to a large nonuniform group of people
You live in Helsinki, you know for a fact that people are idiots.
Back on the subject:
Yleisliima wrote:IMHO Ryan C nailed it. There seem to be two completely different meanings for the word "stable". Stable=straight is a very accurate and useful definition, and that's why I prefer it. The other way is calling a disc more or less stable than another disc. It seems to me the latter form is far more commonly used, and therefore I'm a bit hesitant to simply call it the wrong way to use a word.
One word having two meanings is a PITA when trying to accurately and unambiguously describe something. The same meaning should still hold when using it comparatively, i.e. an MD2 is more stable than a Wolf, and it's also more stable than a Drone, Wolf is more understable than either, Drone more overstable than either. If you allow "more stable" to mean "more overstable" regardless of the situation, then the whole thing blows up.
And Ryan, talk about stability naturally includes taking into account the distance the disc if thrown (or at least meant to be thrown). You can obviously say that the same disc is overstable, stable or understable depending on the distance. Just please don't make more stable and more overstable mean the same thing.
