Tech Support: “Well, that’s just an industry term sir. I don’t believe it was meant to-”

    Why do people care about words so much? If you don’t believe in icons, then the word is just mumbo-jumbo to you, what do you care?
    I’d couuuuuld understand if a Catholic or Orthodox was outraged that a word for holy pictures was used for mundane items, but this is plain silly.

      I think the word he was looking for was “idol”… not “icon”. He confused the two words. I mean, it’s not uncommon. I once confused the words “retired” and “retarded”. Still, I was 6. What’s this guy’s excuse?
