Well they do say that only the first and last letters have to be in the correct place in order for the brain to understand the text.

Actually it's from the German word for nothing "nicht," a variation of which is "nit." But your version sounds more plausible so you should continue using it. You sound knowledgeable saying that.

Actually, I think I'm right, but if you have any proof of your boldly stated contention I would be happy to read it.

Darwin is right, and it's a relatively recent term too.

"As nitpicking inherently requires fastidious, meticulous attention to detail, the term has become appropriated to describe the practice of meticulously searching for minor, even trivial errors in detail (often referred to as "nits" as well), and then criticising them. "Nitpicker" in this sense was often used after 1951, predominantly in the United States

and yet....

quote:
nit
The egg or young of a parasitic insect, such as a louse.

That is, I thought the term nitpicking came from picking nits, which, louse being very small and their eggs being even smaller, well, you get the idea. Now I was suprised to find the etymology of nitwit on dictionary.com makes no reference to nits as in louse eggs but instead attributes it to the German word for nothin, nit or niht. The story is the same for nitpicking, which is apprently about picking 'nothing'. I find that less than satisfactory and wonder if there is some connection between the German word for nothing and louse eggs.

It's around now it would be really useful to have your ignore user function.
