You are right of course, which doesn't stop the shills form downvoting you.
Also, Szabo and Wuille can't resist the temptation to score cheap shots at Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in that thread, and Manfred Karrer (of Bisq) ignorantly claims BCH (the currency)
> not only abused the brand of Bitcoin but also a scientific term
Couldn't resist responding to that level of ignorance myself.
In coding theory, the BCH codes or Bose–Chaudhuri–Hocquenghem codes form a class of cyclic error-correcting codes that are constructed using polynomials over a finite field (also called Galois field). BCH codes were invented in 1959 by French mathematician Alexis Hocquenghem, and independently in 1960 by Raj Bose and D. K. Ray-Chaudhuri. The name Bose–Chaudhuri–Hocquenghem (and the acronym BCH) arises from the initials of the inventors' surnames (mistakenly, in the case of Ray-Chaudhuri).
One of the key features of BCH codes is that during code design, there is a precise control over the number of symbol errors correctable by the code.
