    Maybe.  But for most people, 'kill' and 'rendered inert' or 'rendered inoperative' are effectively equivalent, so I assume they're being used interchangeably.  

    When a soldier says he killed a tank with LAW, I don't argue the semantics with him. ;)

    Also, since the person I was responding to stated that killing a virus was possible -- or at least that it was not not possible -- that kinda lends weight to the idea that they weren't being an insufferable pedant. ;)
