Usage notes[edit]

This word has a wide variety of nuances ranging from the very negative to the grudgingly positive, and the interpretation is highly context-dependent. The positive nuances arise from usage where what is said is not really what is meant, somewhat similarly to how "oh, you shouldn't have" doesn't mean what it literally says.
