    Erm, many people referred to that in this discussion explicitly
    and implicitly - beyond its well-known technical meaning it's
    also the English meaning of the word 'release':

    : [...] to make available to the public [...]

    So stop pretending that this is somehow the mistake of *others*
    explaining it to you wrong ...

    Just admit it already that you were trivially and dead wrong all
    along, and that you were pretty difficult and obnoxious about
    handling a discussion that went against you.

    Being wrong is normal and it happens all the time - and a big
    part of the picture is how you handle such situations, to not
    try to wriggle out of the responsibility of being wrong and to
    not waste other people's time with such self-gratifying mental

    Such as:

    You should not argue about the semantics about a revert not
    because somehow it's not important (it is), but because you've
    been wrong about this issue too. You should learn and improve.
