Why is Spock considered 'infamous', by the author?As far as I'm aware, he's one of the greatest Trek protagonists of all.(TNG > all, btw)

In-famous is when you're more than famous."This man El Guapo is not just famous, he's IN-famous."

No, Infamous is when you're famous for something bad. Say Jesse James, he's infamous. But Albert Einstein is just famous. Spock definitely isn't infamous.

not exactly, infamous suggest being famous, but for shady reasons. al capone was infamous, abe lincoln is not.

Fingal wins the replies, I must say

Fingal is right.Don't correct people (trogdor) if you don't know it yourself.

From Wikipedia:"Infamy, in common usage, is notoriety gained from a negative incident or reputation (as opposed to fame). The word stems from the Latin infamia, antonym of fama (fame)."From Webster.com:"Infamy - 1: evil reputation brought about by something grossly criminal, shocking, or brutal2 a: an extreme and publicly known criminal or evil act b: the state of being infamous."Trogdor is correct.

For those of you retards who dont get it, Fingal was using a quote from the movie The Three Amigos.

Seriously, who doesn't remember that movie? I know it's hard to recall when Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Chevy Chase were still funny, but come ON!
