Well that certainly would account for their being called PLANHTAI,
but were they thought of as led on that course by some influence apart from
themselves or as being wanderers by their own nature.
Really, we should probably just let this particular matter drop,
since the point I was trying to make depended on the asumption that words
with identical roots and similar etymology (PLANAW and PLANHTHS) would be
similar in meaning. And such considerations may, or may not indicate
similarity in meaning.
The argument for the reflexive middle meaning of PLANAW in 1 Cor.
6:9 really should be able to stand on the basis of the context. And the
context does appear to bear it out as shown by the part of my post not
quoted by Stephen. Something that seems odd to me, however, is that Baur
classifies the reflexive and other middle meanings at s.v. PLANAW, 2:c:beta
and gamma as passives (see the heading of section 2) and makes no mention of
