My view is that anyone who uses the NASA designators instead of the correct names (as assigned by the Russians) for Progress and Soyuz spacecraft is showing their total ignorance of the Russian spacecraft, and therefore their views and comments should be totally ignored.

Although there's still no excuse for NASA (or anyone) referring to 
Progress M-15M as Progress 47, there is no previous spacecraft with this
designation.  The original Progress series (Progress Classic? :-) ended with
Progress 42.
One more time, I will continue to use the official Russian denomination until my dying day!
  It is and always will be Progress M-15M.
