Likewise. A lot of people who I've talked to don't object to "Activity" as
much as I do, mostly because of the use of activity to talk about things
like volcanic activity, glacial activity, and so on. I still think that
those imply the volcano or glacier are agents in the process, but if I'm
the only one who's being picky, I'll drop it and not report the issue.
