FOR THE LOVE OF GOD CAN WE PLEASE STOP USING THE TERM ERASURE INCORRECTLY?

Look, I get it, it sounds smart.  I’m all about sounding smart.  But 99% of the time THAT IS NOT WHAT IT MEANS.  Also under some circumstances it does mean ‘the act of erasing’ but most of the time when people use the word erasure in relation to literature or anything that can be analyzed like literature, they are referring to this: http://deoxy.org/alephnull/erasure.htm 

Yes, its confusing, I agree!  But please stop.  It hurts.
