if you scroll down you will see the section on english is listed as
english (sidespin)
sidespin bolded by me for emphasis
....I see where You're coming from.....I've seen the same definition of not including the draw or follow (in England they refer to it as....side and not English....go figure )......

.......but with the spin that they invoke.....I include them in my definition.....so that I can deal with all of the spin inducing hits....(which are commonly used together).....on the same level......

...like I said...it's a constantly evolving definition....

....thanks for the input.....
