is it just me that gets bothered when people say "water ice" rather than just "ice"?

like there isn't any other kind of ice so why not just say ice?

this is probably the motivation behind it

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volatiles
Planetary scientists often class volatiles with exceptionally low melting points, such as hydrogen and helium, as gases (as in gas giant), while those volatiles with melting points above about 100 K are referred to as ices.

chad seems to have fucked off for a while

despite having him on total ignore, I can still see "Last post by [string of digits]" and see whether there any discontinuities in the post numbering so I presume he's not here
