Hi Guys,

This is not a bug, so not in the bug tracker, butIi noticed it, and feel 
its a small thing in the interface which is illogical.

I'm currently writing some blender resources, and got up to the section 
explaining about deleting vertices in edit mode. I noticed that the 
'Delete Menu', is actually titled the 'Erase Menu' which is not 
incorrect use of English. But I think is illogical, especially since you 
can access the menu via the [Delete] key.

Erase I would imaging being used in relation to 2D image editing where 
there is an Analogue nature about the action.  But I would imagine 
Delete as being to remove something completely.

Anyone have strong opinions either way?  I would vote to have the 
wording changed.
