Please, please, please don't take this the wrong way: but is it possible for you to spell out your words properly? I edit for a living and every time I read one of your posts it gives me the twitches.

moot

NOUN: 1. Law A hypothetical case argued by law students as an exercise.

2. An ancient English meeting, especially a representative meeting of the freemen of a shire.

TRANSITIVE VERB: Inflected forms: moot·ed, moot·ing, moots
1a. To bring up as a subject for discussion or debate. b. To discuss or debate. See synonyms at broach.

2. Law To plead or argue (a case) in a moot court.

ADJECTIVE: 1. Subject to debate; arguable: a moot question.

2a. Law Without legal significance, through having been previously decided or settled. b. Of no practical importance; irrelevant.

ETYMOLOGY: Middle English, meeting, from Old English mt, gemt.

OTHER FORMS: mootness —NOUN

USAGE NOTE: The adjective moot is originally a legal term going back to the mid-16th century. It derives from the noun moot, in its sense of a hypothetical case argued as an exercise by law students. Consequently, a moot question is one that is arguable or open to debate. But in the mid-19th century people also began to look at the hypothetical side of moot as its essential meaning, and they started to use the word to mean “of no significance or relevance.”

Thus, a moot point, however debatable, is one that has no practical value. A number of critics have objected to this use, but 59 percent of the Usage Panel (at Bartleby.com) accepts it in the sentence: "The nominee himself chastised the White House for failing to do more to support him, but his concerns became moot when a number of Republicans announced that they, too, would oppose the nomination." When using moot one should be sure that the context makes clear which sense is meant.

Your usage of it in the initial post is correct; however continuing to discuss it when it's a moot point (there's no further recourse or action you can take, or it's too late to correct it) makes the continuation of the thread, uh, un-moot.

I love when people quote the dictionary

I can actually see their head moving on their shoulders with an overabundance of attitude
