How? How does it make any difference whatsoever?It's a distinction that makes a difference...just not to you.
Again, it's not like we're mind reading here. The player is making their intentions perfectly, crystal clear here. What advantage is there in forcing the players to only describe their actions in a single prescribed way? Which is what @Oofta was saying. It's not a case of preference. It's that you are insisting that players MUST describe their actions in a single defined way, while we're saying, it doesn't really matter how they describe their actions, so long as the intent is clear.
