    Ah, irony. The internet's ongoing battleground of linguistic failure.

    There should be a browser plugin that just plays Alanis Morrisette anytime someone uses it incorrectly.

    I used to post on a board that had the definition of irony stickied to the top (I don't think it was this board)

    That's pretty ironic. Or is it wistful? :)

    Beat me to it!.

    And while we're on the subject of misuse of terms: The word "myriad" implies the prepositions. Thus, "He had myriad issues with the case." Not: "He had a myriad of issues with the case." Sorry, personal pet peeve.

    ....of course we should note that the definition of "irony" is itself, a bit nuanced... ;)

    I told you this would come. This is all the liberals have. Nuance.

    Hmm. So anyone who disagrees with you (or points out a common error) is a liberal?

    I can understand the issues with nuance. Appears there is none in your world.

    And all Dave can do when he is dead to rights on an issue is move the goalposts.
