Sense 3 added today by User:Eroica: To confirm, favour, strengthen (an opinion, theory, etc.), with a problematic quotation.
I suspect Eroica is a Wonderfool sock reactivated yesterday after almost 3 years of dormancy. -- WikiPedant 19:48, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
- Wonderfool is back on fr: as well, a "new" user that edited (correctly) one of my subpages. Mglovesfun (talk) 20:16, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Cited IMHO. Whether or not Eroica is WF — and these days, who isn't? — the sense is real, and the def seems to be right. (It's actually not so trivial to decide exactly what a cite means by the phrase, but the 1912 cite certainly seems to support the def.) —RuakhTALK 03:34, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
- Thank you, Ruakh. Striking as passed.—msh210℠ 17:17, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
