I see your point, but I lost count of the number of times I had
conversations with other tech writers where my side went "My job
title? I'm a contractor. No, I get paid a salary. Yes, I get sick
time. Yes, I get vacation time. Yes, I get paid for holidays. Yes, I'm
on the retirement plan. No, there's no expiration date to the
contract."

So, perhaps we all here in our wisdom are in complete understanding of the term.

But I keep running into people who are not.
