Well, since you left my name in this, I posted is as the quote is often used to illustrate the problem of people altering definitions of words to suit their needs, often done so with a touch of intellectual dishonesty. Alluding to subtle differences in usage or alternate meaning of words is one thing, making *#&^$ up simply because it fits your already constructed worldview is quite another.

Lewis Carroll was quite fond of logical puzzles as well as logical fallacy and word games.

Nothing else for me to add here...
Ah, at last I see where certain views are coming from. "Making up to fit a world view" and "intellectual dishonesty". Mmmmmmm. Nice.
