We`re almost done accepting, and then a fucking Redneck must have confused “deal” with “acceptance,” and we`re right where we started. *facepalm* To be safe, I will continue to use “agreement”. “The results of my experiment are consistent with Michelson`s and with the law of general relativity.” I don`t think “consent” is a universally accepted word. That`s not to say it`s not used in certain settings or regions, but I don`t remember ever hearing or reading it, and it seems strange to me. I would never use it myself. When you say “people in my area,” are you talking about a specific geographic area or job or discipline? I am curious to see this group using that word. For things to agree, they are harmonious or do not contradict each other.
