Why do people so frequently think that "semantics" is a bad thing that
should be avoided for fear of disgust and puke?

If you don't pay attention to semantics you miscommunicate. You say
things that aren't and don't say things that are.

There's no need to say things in an incorrect form just because some do
so. You help them understand better by not feeding their bad-semantics.

Maybe you could offer them a dictionary with the words steal and copy
underlined :)
