Mihaela, I certainly didn't mean to offend; as to my preference: if I found either term in a text I was proofreading, I wouldn't alter it for the other. And neither of my peer 'agrees' expressed a prefence, either...I confess, I don't know for sure which term I would use; only that I find both terms perfectly acceptable.
