The voters have decided that mihneacuzino2 is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

Tactful and tactless are opposite and unrelated to either tack or tacky.

Flammable and inflammable mean the same thing? What a country.

They also aren't related to each other.

It's because tactless is derived from tact, not tacky.
