Origin of medireview

  • Accidentally coined by technicians designing the filters of Yahoo! Mail in 2001. To protect against a JavaScript bug, the function eval (short for evaluate) was disabled by automatically replacing every instance of the string eval with the string review — theoretically synonymous (since eval in English could be short for evaluation). However, eval also got changed when it was a substring of words like medieval, and medireview was adopted because its roots and morphemes resemble real English compound words.
