    definition, you lose.

    look, the OP said that we were far too willing to cede our rights and blatantly said that it would lead to universities having psyche profiles on students which is a butt-assed dumb assertion and I called it out with actual facts. period.

    •  I'm not commenting on the substance, that wasn't (0+ / 0-)

      my intention.

      Just on the use of that word, in general, at DailyKos.

      It gets used all the time here in a way that ends up meaning something that the poster didn't mean at all, and as an old calling cry of the left, it oughtn't be used incorrectly here. It is, in fact, embarrassing.

      I have no other comment and wasn't commenting on the substantive points of the post to which I replied. I was saying "please know the meanings of the words that you use if you want to communicate clearly."

      •  Yeah. Ok. Right. BTW, it wasn't me who first (0+ / 0-)

        Used it.

        But whatever. You're embarrassed.

        For the record, I am not a member of Courtesy Kos. Just so you know. Don't be stupid. It's election season. My patience is short.

          •  i saw it on the recent list. didn;t bother reading (0+ / 0-)

            it.

            Do you typically get worked up over colloquial uses of words? I think socially and culturally accepted use matters. But thanks anyway.

            •  That's why it's embarrassing. (0+ / 0-)

              I work in an area in which I get to see the word used a lot, but the only place I continued to see it used incorrectly was on DKos, the one place where it should matter.
