It’s one of those things that just annoys me. Sadly, I hear it almost every single day.
“The point is mute.” “It’s a mute point.”
Listen people… its moot, not mute. MOOT.
Moot is what these people intend to say. They want to tell you that your point is not worth arguing, or unwinnable. Instead, they tell you that your point doesn’t speak or make sound.
Telling these people this, however, is a MOOT point.
