  •  There is nothing wrong with deliberately migrating (0+ / 0-)

    meaning with additional connotations acknowledging that this is what you are doing, but there IS something wrong with doing it out of ignorance of the fact that your meaning is actually different, which is what happened here.  They weren't TRYING to come up with a new meaning - they were ignorant of the fact that they were using the word wrong, and then they misinformed the public.

    It's a bit like creationists using the word "evolution" incorrectly and then claiming that because they outnumber biological scientists, that the word now means what they say it does and biologists now have to defend it on those grounds because "we won the demographics battle and get to define the word now".
