Vaaaaaague definition. Can someone reword it in much clearer language? I would do it but I don't quite understand the word myself! Thanks. Tooironic 08:11, 1 February 2010 (UTC)

This should be at WT:RFC: doesn't look like a request for verification.​—msh210 17:11, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
I've extended the definition slightly, and added a topical example. I think the US legal sense is just a particular use of the ordinary sense, but there are other shades of meaning that we should possibly show separately. Dbfirs 17:57, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Striking: clearly widespread use, and Tooironic doesn't seem to actually be doubting it. As msh210 says, feel free to list it at RFC. —RuakhTALK 17:07, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
