Apr 26 '13 at 17:52 comment added Kaz So if they put "Capacitor" on the silk screen, I'd be ignorant not to call it an Ethernet Capacitor? You two would eat your words in that situation, I'm afraid. There is value in pushing the "it's a daughterboard" point, because it helps the Arduino crowd not to look like buffoons. Those Arduino users who do not actually know that the rest of the world doesn't call it "shield" deserve to know that.
Apr 26 '13 at 17:29 comment added Anindo Ghosh @Kaz A shield is a valid name, and the official one decided upon by the brand owner, by the for a daughterboard as applied to devices designed for the Arduino platform, just as a "PCI card" is a perfectly valid term for a daughterboard of a specific format. It's here to stay, one can either live with it, or just ignore the question - no value to trying to push that "it's a daughterboard" point.

Apr 26 '13 at 7:22 comment added Tom L. @Kaz: Actually it's ignorant to not use the correct naming. The Arduino daughter boards are really named "shields". I do also think that the name is chosen very badly, but that's the way it is.
