This is who you said I was arguing with. There, your question, answered literally.
I never said you were arguing with a dictionary or with its editors. Nor did I ask who you were arguing with.
What I said was: “ Hate IS dislike. Literally and factually defined as such. I know you think the Oxford English Dictionary is bullshit, but here you go:
hate - intense or passionate dislike
It’s not intense apathy. It’s not passionate fondness. It’s…wait for it…DISLIKE.
The DEFINITION of hate is dislike.
A goose is not a duck, but they are both waterfowl.
A pen is not a pencil, but they are both writing instruments.
Hate IS dislike, by the very definition.
Stop arguing things you don’t understand.”
Pretty straightforward stuff.
