LTTAM: It seems like a significant percentage of the people who submit edits to IMDB don't know what the word "anachronism" means. The "goofs" section for every movie/show is categorized into subsections like anachronisms, continuity errors, crew/equipment visible, factual errors, etc. I've been noticing that many if not most of the things that are categorized as factual errors are actually anachronisms and really should have been categorized as such. The only explanation I can think of is that the people who submitted them don't know what that word means.
