The world disagrees with you:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=define%3A%22weak+typing%22
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/weak typing
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weak_typing

The distinction between weak and strong typing is as useful as that 
between large and small, and like the later, the lack of a precise 
distinction doesn't prevent the distinction being useful. (A large 
virus and a large star are not the same size.)
