A limit at a point means a function is continuous at that point, but orangutans still don't get it!

Nope, then the singularity can be removed. Thats the correct terminology.
Same for your new calculoose, where you smoothen out:
f(b)  f(a)  = f'(a) for lim b>a b  a
Which is the same as:
f(x+h)  f(x) f(x+h)  f(x)  =  = f'(x) for lim h>0 x+h  x h
Nothing new on this planet. Maybe something new on planet man boobs.
