Interesting, Geoff. It rather coincides with my post about using the word "andragogy." The usage and acceptance of words is important, too, but some don't consider that. Remember arnie and his "moot" point?

Gosh, I'd forgotten about arnie! I want people to start replacing the word, "education" with "etrahation." Education's roots are Latin for "lead or guid through," whereas my coinage means "drag through," as in instilling propaganda, lies, and myths.
