I would agree. It used to be that drones were bees and parts of bagpipes.
But as with everything else the media had to stick there nose in and now
most everything that flies is officially called a drone.

I guess it's no different than how low-life crackers get the privilege of
being called hackers, or how anything that looks like a firearm is
automatically an assault rifle.

Even though sharing information it's now easier than ever before somehow
facts no longer matter.
