    Stop arguing over the definition of corrupt!

    You are all fighting over semantics. You're all right. CORRUPT HAS MORE THAN ONE DEFINITION.

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/corrupt

    cor·rupt verb \kə-ˈrəpt\

    Definition of CORRUPT

    1 a : to change from good to bad in morals, manners, or actions; also : bribe (This did not happen to Garrosh)
    b : to degrade with unsound principles or moral values

    2 : rot, spoil

    3 : to subject (a person) to corruption of blood

    4 : to alter from the original or correct form or version <the file was corrupted> (This DID happen to Garrosh)

    I think people need to stay using the term "mind-controlled" or "brainwashed" instead when they want to talk about characters being "corrupted"...
    Trying to argue anything with any sort of nuance over Twitter is the intellectual equivalent of trying to trying to squeeze a cow through a keyhole. Sure, you might even be able to do it with enough brute force, and whatever comes out the other side might even still be considered to be "cow" in the technical sense, but it will be so mangled as to be completely unrecognizable.

    Feel free to link to this if you continue to see pointless bickering in other threads.
