what does the word "con" mean to you? i do not want a dictionary definition. i have a dictionary, i also have internet access. i can look up the word and i can type it in a search box. that isn't what i want. when you see the printed word "con" what comes to mind? when you hear it what comes to mind. the first things i think of is "convict" or "anti" edit: there will no doubt be a post where someone says "it depends on the context". in that case YOU determine what the context is. i am interested in first impressions here.
