This paper uses the modern surveys: FIRST and 2dF to show (or rather 

1. SMBH mass is _not_ responsible for the radio loudness.
2. The alleged RL/RQ dichotomy is a selection effect - there is a continuum
   of possible levels of radio loudness. 
My 0.03 PLN: I will still like the term "radio-loud" for those AGN which
occupy the particular part (side) of that radio loudness continuum.
