Citation needed (for it being a settled usage and not just terminology made up on the spot). Again, I don't see enough notability to keep this article (the same goes for Sound logic). Unless you convince me, I'm going to remove it (in a few days). Please don't create articles of little use, this only increases bit rot. As it is, the wiki needs more quality and detail for the existing articles, not more raw material (see my user page). --Vladimir Nesov 16:31, 22 January 2011 (UTC)

Citation? This is an age-old distinction in logic, distinguishing between a valid and a sound proof. Introductory philosophy courses often cover as do introductory logic textbooks. Wikipedia even covers it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Validity#Validity_and_soundness --Gwern 17:24, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
