The fact that polyamory has more criteria *to you* does nothing to the definition of the word. What you have a problem with is polyamorous arrangements (or any non-monogamous arrangement, I presume) which functions with a DADT policy.

As it happens, that is also not my style of polyamory and I don't involve myself in those kinds of relationships.

You thought I was being mean? I was actually going out of my way to be nice because you seem like a level headed enough person who is just having some issues.

If you think *that* was mean, you should probably skip past my posts because I don't make a habit of coddling.
