Curious how often it really happens with someone you don't really know though.
Hmm.. Sounded something like this?
Just scroll down to after the links at the top and you even got a sound-file with it!
And I say "Linu" the same in both Linux and Linus. Everyone I've met here does.
Nah I consume movies and tv shows but I can't in any way call it watching TV.
I don't pretend what I do is any better, just that there is a difference.
Reason I care to call them different is because I don't pay to get all programs I don't care about on TV but pay for the movies and shows I do want to watch.
I do want to make that distinction for sure. I do watch a lot of movies and series but I don't do it on TV.
So don't think of me as the "guy who watches a lot of TV" but the "guy who plays games a lot and watches stuff on netflix more than the average TV user".
So your friends are right.
If the hate is within the rights of your freedom of speech - sure I would.
And sure, run naked too. I won't and I guess most won't but I wouldn't care personally if people did. That's their problem.
Which was - Nothing Useful / Being an ass!
To do some work for you I find http://dictionary.reference.co... which supports your idea of the word. But it does support both our versions very well.
So it's still correct to say "create a copy". And people use the word that way.
You say academia doesn't use it that way, the rest of the world does.
Yup. The problem is that you're the horse and you don't drink.
You haven't shown me any water yet.
Maybe you are right but you have yet to support it. So far you've been proven wrong.
At the same time I can agree this is getting tiresome.
No. Creative is a noun decribing people that do creative (adjective) work. And people that do creative are people that create unique stuff.
I've supported some kind of proof (I do in this case call the Oxford Dictionary proof) and so far you have not.
So what supports you?
Ah - Doh on the Synonyms part. Just saw you linked to the definition of synonym itself.
But also says it "was" a synonym for it, not that it is.
In a factory I suppose it's more likely say you assemble something. But at the same time you did create another copy.
It seems you mistake "creative" and "create". You don't have to be creative to create something.
Yes I agree "creative" implies inventing something "unique". Create doesn't.
So you're not creative if you copy something but you do create a copy.
Don't find support for "The East" and "The Soviet Empire" to be synonyms. But you say they are listed as such so I'll just believe that.
However the factory workers create the individual copies. The definition of "Creator" doesn't imply uniqueness either.
But if you want create to be "creating the design" I can agree. Then I create my own copy from your design.
Still not stealing though.
No it doesn't and create and make are synonyms.
And you Create a Copy.
There is not really a problem there.
Either I create something that didn't exist or I took something that did exist. And I certainly didn't take it so then it was created.
But prove me wrong if you feel like it. Or not if you don't.
I just find the definition odd.
