it is so much fun to start an argument then stand back and watch...but I can't help jumping back in here!
Holmburgers, what is the point of having a language if meaning can be "fluid?" If people can decide that the accepted opposite of a word is also correct, we lose the ability to communicate with one another, which is the purpose of a language.
I guess you can decide to apply your own meanings to words or phrases, but you shouldn't get upset when others don't understand what you mean.
