    Look, I didn't make you be wrong
    That's because I am not, as proven.

    The dictionary just demonstrates that you are.
    You mean the -one- dictionary you cited?
    You -did- see the OED and Merriam-Webster cites, right?
    The ones that prove you wrong?
    Or are you going to argue that the OED and M/W are wrong?

    Not according to the -actual- defintion of phobia.

    The American Heritage dictionary is an authoritative source. Also was the very first one I came across.

    I didn't make you wrong. You made yourself be wrong. And you keep being committed to being wrong.

    That's on you, pal. What do you want me to do? Go through every dictionary in the country and change the definition to one you like or need it to be so you can be right again?

    I don't see that happening.

    You can say it till you are blue in the face but it doesn't make you correct. The actual definition includes contempt or aversion. Also, that does nothing to speak to the modern usage of the entire word and not just the root word.

    You're still wrong. Learn to live with it or change.

    Funny how it is the only one that supports you, while numerous others do not.
    Why do you -choose- to ignore those?

    I didn't make you wrong.
    You're right -- because I am right.
    Not much I -can- do about that.

    I don't know what you want me to do about you being wrong. If you figure out a plan for remedying the situation, let me know, but until then, you just have to learn to live with being wrong.

    No.... being correct, as proven, makes me correct.
