N2 - There is a widely held misconception that velocity reciprocity follows solely from the relativity of motion principle, where by velocity reciprocity is meant that the velocity of a reference frame S relative to another reference frame S′ is equal and opposite to the velocity of S′ relative to S. This misconception still persists even today among many physicists, in spite of efforts by others to explain why it is wrong. In view of this situation, we consider it worthwhile to give some interesting examples illustrating why this misconception is wrong. Our examples include ones in both curved and flat spacetimes.
