Globe and Mail Drops the Ball

If you needed any more evidence that the general public, including Toronto's Globe and Mail newspaper, doesn't know what "philosophy" means, check out this profile of a self-described "cyberphilosopher" and his campaign to expose the dark side of the parent-child relationship:
The philosophy behind this is codified and has its own lingo. For example RTR (Real-Time Relationship) means you're willing to confront a spouse or parent if you feel they're hurting you. "If you don't want to be a slave, stop acting like a slave," he writes.
One might have hoped for at least one sentence in the article explaining that this has nothing to do with philosophy.
