Rewarding ignorance

Whilst cyber-thumbing through the dictionary, I came across this heinous act of verbicide:

Nonplussed

So what you’re saying is, because most Americans clearly don’t understand the word, we’re changing its definition to mean the exact opposite of what it actually means?

Kinda pathetic, methinks.
