Thread Name: BS: Oxymorons
Subject: RE: BS: Oxymorons
Having checked a couple of definitions, it seems one key factor is whether the terms are 'apparently' contradictory. This is a bit of a problem because it makes the oxymoronness in the eye of the beholder. So if you think of 'choice' as take it or leave it you get one answer, but if you think of it as 'select from alternatives' you get another.
