OK, I'll call your bluff: prove it. Even the majority of dictionaries shown to have this misdefinition have been ones with ulterior motives.

Even if you can prove it on a balance of probabilities (and I don't think you will), the majority of people outside this list who use computers probably don't use Debian. Are they right on that, too? Correct and popular are not always correlated.
