    the evil turn the indentifier practical

    What does "the evil turn the indentifier practical" mean?


    -------------------------
    Lash @blatham,
    Me, Merriam and Webster? Cause they agree with me.

    Lash @Lash,
    Maybe you haven't noticed the evil turn the indentifier practical has taken

    roger @snood,
    Too bad unlikeable isn't an impeachable offense.

    "Maybe you haven't noticed the evil turn the indentifier practical has taken."
    Misspelling of 'identifier', ie. the noun 'practical'.

    I take it to mean " 'Maybe you haven't noticed the evil turn this word ('practical') has taken. It sounds like the writer is suggesting that 'practical' has taken on a usage that he disagrees with.
    I have no idea what the conversation is about.
