Looks like only one or two might be "testy." Hardly "everyone."

I just don't see a reason to make a frou-frou about whether they're called "boiled" eggs or "hard-cooked" eggs. June seems to have a problem with the nomenclature.
If you reread the post you took exception to, you should see that she was not making a frou-frou at all. She was agreeing with the method but mentioned that it is hard-cooked and not boiled because it is exactly that difference that makes the process so simple and foolproof. She was not taking anyone to task for mislabeling, just using the word difference to support this way of cooking eggs.

Thats it! I'm turning this car around right now! You will all have to call grandma and explain to her why we are not visiting due to the fact that you cannot just agree that hard boiled and hard cooked eggs are one and the same and its all just a semantics issue. I'm sure she will understand that we are missing her 99th birthday for such an important issue.

LOL! LOL!! LOL!!! Naw, we won't be missing Grandma's birthday over it. It's only important to "chefs" - we little folk really don't care what you call them.

I was going to have one in my salad but then they couldn't tell me if it was cooked or boiled and so I threw my salad against the wall and fled in tears.

LOL!!! I know how you feel. Even though I've been using the "bring the water to a boil & then turn off the heat" method for many years, I've still been calling them hard-boiled eggs for those same many years. Just think - thousands & thousands of eggs going to their demise with an identity crisis.

Yeah, I just talked to your Mom and she's very concerned with your emotional outburst. She wants to know, "Just who you think is going to clean up that mess, mister?"!
