Vox - you never struck me as someone perusing trashy tabloid sites.

That's what peruse actually means. People generally misuse it.

I'll be damned, your right. I'm not even going to mention how many years I have been using this word incorrectly.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt

I hope you are right. Im not looking forward to "engaged in a cursory examination" as a substitute. The first two online definitions I came across were not promising but I didnt peruse them all.

I thought it was a comment on people who display a vast knowledge of trashy tabloid arcana.

(Is "arcana" even a word? If not, I guess I have removed all doubt.)

Well of course it means both, especially considering that most people use it to mean the second definition. The dictionary didn't drop from the sky. It reflects usage. I was just having a little fun with definition 1. People here would appreciate that the first definition of brogue, in most dictionaries I have perused, is the shoe and not the, ya know, brogue.
