Yeah, your ad hominem attack is ill-placed. My initial response was conceptual, not personal; a response to the OP's question in a general sense, not re: her possible motivation. Can't read people's minds, thank God. After a minute I imagine it would feel like being poached alive in the boiling seas of Hell.

1. I noted my opinion that a "3d" category is impractical and redundant, in direct response to the OP's question.

2. Noted that, in addition to impracticality, SOME people (I've witnessed and heard about) act out a "good hair/bad hair" complex with the "3d" category.

The "elephant in the room" (#2) is what I felt wasn't being acknowledged. I never targeted anyone in this thread as having the "good hair / bad hair" complex of which I speak.

Unless someone fits into the sub-category of people who have the insecurity complex I speak of, I have no idea why there would be a defensive reaction to me simply noting the fact of the existence of the complex.

3. i acknowledged that people get to label their hair whatever they'd like, my personal observations and thoughts be damned.
