Ahhh... but backgrounds are not really more blurred with longer lenses, it's just that they are reproduced at larger scale, which LOOKS like more blur... (the blur shows up better because it is bigger).

That's a pretty subtle distinction in terms of making pictures. Photography is an inherently visual medium - if backgrounds look more blurred, then in a very real sense they are more blurred.

Ah, who can win against logic like that!  Language is an inherently communicative medium - if an underlying implication appears to be true, then in a very real sense it is true.
