The correct and only sensible response vote has fallen to only 97.66%.

Let him off the hook already with these bumps (not including this one). This is cruel.

He's ****ed off a lot of people with some obvious troll threads to rile **** up. I've never thought it was anything but hilarious.

Knocked down. Pretty clear, when making an article or a forum post even if you view floored as stunned why confuse others who use it in a more clear manner?

All in the context, It's like using the term gutted: scenario 1) i bought the fish scaled and gutted. scenario 2) your team lost you must be gutted. Not really interchangeable and makes sense/nonsense based on what context used in. In the second scenario he isn't demanding the supporter must be slit from pectus to pelvis.

In a sense MW is right, floored does mean to stun albeit in a metaphorical way. However where the literal meaning is available, semantically all metaphorical meanings must surely be relinquished. Blah blah blah
