Alan, your assertion is trivial and arbitrary. Some people prefer these denotations. Some don't. It's a stylistic choice. It's arbitrary whether one prefers to call moist air steam or vapor. This isn't the substantive issue here. Only idiots argue semantics.
People that are interested in scientific truth and accuracy are careful to remove the ambiguity in terminology. Trolls and science groupies preserve ambiguity since ambiguity gives these dunces the illusion that they understand what they don't actually understand.
Don't be a dunce. Be smart. Address the substantive issue and leave to stupid shit to the many trolls who spend their time pretending they understand what they don't.
Regardless of whether we refer to moist air in earth's atmosphere as vapor or steam the fact is that moist air--including moist air that is perfectly clear--is not monomolecular, gaseous H2O. It isn't in the gaseous phase when it is below 100 C and so it is liquid. And no part of the atmospherr is above 100 C so all of the moisture in the atmosphere is liquid H2O suspended between air molecules. There is zero gaseous H2O in earth's atmosphere.
These retards refuse to accept this. Instead they make silly arguments that since it can be defined ambiguously that therefore we can assume that this ambiguity is reflected in reality.
The implications of this realization go much farther along the lines of realizing that much of meteorology is cult based and just pretends to be scientific. For example, for reasons explained clearly here (link below) that means that air that contains moisture will always be heavier than air that does not. And that means moist air convection is impossible, destroying meteorology's myth that moist air convection is what powers storms and opening the door to investigate the true source of the power witnessed in storms.
Isaac Newton was a human being
The notion that moist air is always heavier per volume than dry air is refuted. It is proven false. It is mistaken. It is wrong.
This opens the door to new explanations of storms and atmospheric moisture.
