Misuses of tack and tack drive me bonkers ... as in

"A diplomat, employing tact (not tack), can tell you to go to h*ll in such a
way that you look forward to the trip."

and

"A marketeer, realizing his initial approach wasn't working, tried a
different tack (not tact)."

And ... is it duck tape or duct tape? (I vote duct since that was its
original purpose - to seal joints in aluminum air ducts.

Just stirring the pot ...

And what about mute instead of moot, and just for jist.

I love those. It's a mute point.

Which means we shouldn't talk about it.

And that is the just of it.

Meaning it's just?
