not because I need any evidence that the KJV is the "only version" (why KJV-"O" can be misleading). .
The accurate term KJV-only is not at all misleading. Perhaps you may try to smear and attack the accurate term in order to try to rationalize your attempts to defend KJV-only reasoning.

The KJV is an English Bible translation so clearly and soundly the term KJV-only would apply only to English Bible translations, not Bible translations in other languages.

A KJV-only view involves someone who believes and advocates exclusive, only claims for one English Bible translation--the KJV. Suggesting that the KJV is the word of God translated into English in a different sense than other English Bible translations would indicate KJV-only reasoning. Reading only the KJV and teaching from only the KJV is not what constitutes KJV-only reasoning. Many believers who read the KJV are not KJV-only.

The KJV is the word of God translated into English in the same way that the pre-1611 English Bibles such as the 1560 Geneva Bible are the word of God translated into English and in the same way that post-1611 English Bibles such as the NKJV are the word of God translated into English.

And anyway, the KJV was already the widely accepted, tried and true version it was by 1881 so critiquing the ladder against the one that came before it is acceptable reasoning, it is not circular reasoning. Circular reasoning would be if you tried to defend the New Version's readings for their own sake over the KJV's.
The 1560 Geneva Bible was already the widely accepted, loved, believed, tried and true English version before 1611 so critiquing the ladder [the KJV] against the one that came before it should be acceptable reasoning according to your own stated reasoning. Nevertheless, KJV-only advocates will not accept trying the KJV by the standard and accepted 1560 Geneva Bible that came before it.

Does a consistent, just application of your own statement assert that it would be circular reasoning to try to defend the new version's readings in 1611 for their own sake over the Geneva Bible's?

When compared to the same standard and greater authority of the preserved Scriptures in the original languages, there are some places where the 1560 Geneva Bible is better, clearer, and more accurate than the 1611 KJV is.

KJV-only... The KJV is... the term KJV-only... A KJV-only view involves... the KJV. Suggesting that the KJV... KJV-only reasoning... the KJV... the KJV... constitutes KJV-only reasoning... the KJV... KJV-only. The KJV is the word of God translated into English... [the KJV]... KJV-only advocates... trying the KJV... the 1611 KJV is.
He's still going!
