Spinner flies- Lures or flies?

I've been into some discussions lately as to whether or not spinner flies are really flies. For the purpose of this poll, a spinner fly will be defined as a fly that incorporates a propeller, in-line spinner, or tail spinner.

I say that anything that can be cast within reason on a fly rod is a fly. Heck, aren't clouser deep minnows pretty close to being fly rod jigs? I admit that spinner flies may blurr the edges a bit between flies and lures, but IMHO they're still flies.
