The revised definition of "sexual preference" that happened on 10/14/20 in response to politics illustrates why electronic media needs to be viewed with skepticism. The term was generally, in common usage, not considered offensive until yesterday until Senator Hirono redefined it on 10/14.
The apparent fact that a political activist within the organization can instantly update the meaning of a phrase to suit their beliefs invalidates the reliability of this online dictionary as an impartial reference source.
I will never again have any use M-W as a reference.

Merriam Webster is constantly changing words to match SJW outrage culture. This is no longer a reputable source for English word definitions.

Bought some components for my ladders from immetrical via ebay and I had to send them back because they were not the right size but I am having trouble getting a refund . The company say that I did not post it back in time but I know that I did. It must have been held up in the post. I have tried to use the ebay resolution process but it is like using a chocolate fireguard so I will not be using them again either.

On the one hand, it's Merriam-Webster, the big name in dictionaries. On the other hand, the online version of the dictionary is so packed with ads–many of which feature audio/video that starts automatically–that it can be a chore to get to the definition you're looking for. Add to this the following additional hurdles: (1) after typing in a search word, you have to click through an ADDITIONAL page of advertising to get to the definition; (2) getting definitions to some less-common words requires membership to some higher (presumably paid) level of membership. Bear in mind, I am a professional editor and I have (presumably) a greater interest in and need for a service like M-W Online, and the site taxes my patience.

Their content is great but my security found an XSS hole- and I already had all XSS blocked on it anyways. I also only allow it's main script to run.

For a site with their stature that all is discouraging.

After reading other comments below I am now removing it from my list. There are too many other good alternatives to keep it.

This site is a mixed review. On one hand, it provides outstanding dictionary, thesaurus, and other types of reference information for any writing task. On the other hand, a strong pop-up blocker is needed to stop the advertisements.

I use the Firefox browser and the AdBlockPlus plug in, and have no issues with the site because of the use of the Ad Blocker. If you don't have a solid ad blocker, you may want get one before visiting this site.

Many people know about the annoying pop-up ads served by this site, but not many of then know that, for Mac users, one of the most frequently rotated ads here is for rogue antivirus MacKeeper. And if you don't have a dedicated ad blocker or plugin click-to-play functionality to prevent Adobe Flash from loading automatically, you could be in danger of infection even if you try to close the pop-up by clicking the red "X" button.

Here is a screenshot of a MacKeeper pop-up, foiled by Chrome's plugin click-to-play functionality (pop-up is harmless as long as you don't click to run Adobe Flash Player): http://s1033.photobucket.com/user/santuccie/media/ScreenShot2013-03-18at12201AM.png.html

This content comes from a third party, and the site's administration may or may not be aware of it. But either way, it's guilt by association. Do NOT visit this site without protection from Flash-based exploits!
