Howdy!

The properties of being sorted and being ordered are very different things. Well, being sorted requires being ordered, but not the other way around.

The topic makes an incorrect assertion right up front, and a number of respondents have noted that. Insisting on sticking with demonstrably incorrect usage is kind of silly.

My response was specifically to the words you wrote. I'm not trying to read ikegami's mind here.

Was my explanation confusing or unclear?

yours,
Michael
