    In the literature the work of C. Piron on OQL, ``the operational quantum logic of the Geneva School", has a few times been criticised. Those criticisms were often due to misunderstandings, as has already been pointed out by D.J. Foulis and C.H. Randall. In this paper we follow the line of defense in favour of OQL by replying to the criticisms formulated some time ago by W. Balzer and W.K. Essler & G. Zoubek. In order for the reader to follow our argumentation, we briefly analyze the basic conceptual machinery of OQL.
