He did misuse the term multiple times (as many others have and continue to do). However, I thoroughly explained the correct usage twice now in this very thread (as well as a few other less thorough explanations). So perhaps he knows how to use the term correctly now. Though he nor anyone else was kind enough to acknowledge comprehension of my points or offer any, perish the thought, thanks for the explanations.
