Faint/Feint

Posted by Bookworm on September 19, 2004

In Fallen's post below he says "Praised with faint damn..." I've heard of the phrase "feint praise" (though I haven't seen it spelled out) and I always took it to mean that the praise was faked, hence the correct word would be "feint". Or, was it supposed to "faint" as in with only a slight trace?
