No need to apologize, Keith! I am just sayin'....
As for your other statement, I think if the goal is only to make an attractive picture of a person, then it is glamor, not portrait photography.
If the goal is really portraiture, i.e. to make a picture about a person, then any sort of light which allows you to say that which you want to say is the light to use.
Portraiture is not simply photography in which a person is the main subject.
