A word on language

On my former site I had a glossary of terms I used in my writing, as defined by me.
I will be putting something similar up here in due course, and will still argue that although words have objective definitions, they are not always what dictionaries say they are.

Hence my disavowal of the term “think tank”. It does not objectively describe the thing it is intended to represent, so I shall cease using it.

I will be making a conscious effort to repeat this filtering consistently.
