this is a late response - I'm way behind on my piclist e-mail.
Ouch! This was just a lame attempt at humor - my apologies if
you were offended. I didn't intend to nitpick or criticize - this
is simply a widespread phenomenom that I find interesting to follow,
and I truly hadn't seen that usage before. 'verbing' was an
intentional, tongue in cheek participation in the "fun" (past tense).
Again: I'm sorry. I'll be quiet now.
