Not sure where to post and pardon the rant, but it drives me nuts when IT people do this, esp those trying to prove how "cutting edge" they are by throwing around terms/concepts which they do not have a clue about. Geez, at least bookmark dictionary.com or something, even that will get you in the ballpark.

I understand how you feel because I get frustrated by poor writing skills, word choices, etc. too. But sometimes I remind myself that understanding the point is usually more important than how it is communicated.

Pretty sure people get words mixed up in any industry, not just IT or software development.
