Hmmmm. If people often SEEM to reverse these two, then you're implying that sometimes they clearly incontrovertibly actually DO reverse them? Come on now. No waffling. They do or they don't. ;-)

This is exactly the problem I have!  I have to stop in the middle of reading and try to figure out whether they are actually reversing the two (consistently) or whether they are merely confused -- maybe using the abbreviations at random  -- or what. 

Now I understand. Boy, is that frustrating. And to be confronted with this regularly inan academic setting is particularly frustrating. And also, I'd say, distressing. Seems to me it reflects the creeping dumbing down of education and standards.
