Well, yes. The way you phrased it suggested to me that you disliked or
disapproved of using the word "graceful" in that context. Glad to learn
you aren't troubled by it.

But in your response to John, you call it "not appropriate" -- that
sounds disapproving to me, as if you found the word problematic...

How do you feel about dialog boxes appearing? ;-)
