What is it with this surge of people using "vice" in a sentence versus using "versus"? It is getting annoying.:soapbox:

Are you're sure they're not saying "Viz" (vis) as in "vis a vis"?

Because that means "in regard to"

Nope. :) They say it on conference calls AND in emails.

It's really prevalent in the military

Well there you go..... this is dealing with the military. It seems like some "cool" thing that is catching on or something.
