Dagoba accurately describes this as ‘unwavering’... code for 'tannic panic' - an ugly bean unleashing a relentless ash-attack - bitter & biting, having all the love for your tongue as a viper does for its victim. Commits violence in the name of ‘organic’, making it synonymous with ‘scorched earth’. Like the hole in the ozone layer, it should be closed.
