When people say 1/4 throttle, 99 & 44/100ths percent, mean 1/4 open regardless of what the dictionary says.
Why do you have to be such a stickler? When I say stickler, I mean Tool. look that up. When people say choke, they mean the thing the operate when the engine is cold.
I see the same thing on gun forums where new people refer to magazines as clips. (google it to see the difference) There is always some knowledgeable "stickler" that feels the need to lecture the new guy about the difference.
