Words mean things. Everyone has to agree what those things are. If your definition of a word doesn't match the rest of the world's definition, you have a problem, not the rest of the world.
What about the word "theory". I think that most people in the world would use it incorrectly, but it doesn't change the meaning of the word.

This is exactly how the replicators began.... Slow old 72Mhz processors and then you put enough of them together and the thing goes evil and start taking over the universe.....
I feel that I should say something about the Replicators not being evil as much as a virus is evil.
