RE: Computer Forensics is a misnoner

I second that--Computer Science is the science of computers ergo, Computer
Forensics would be grammatically correct. Though it could be argued that the
'computer' in the phrase is an attributive noun rather than an adjective.
(It acts as if it were a noun--same as Life Science etc).
I wholly accede to Craig's point that it is a misnomer, however, as it
doesn't mean what most people think it does.

first of all, it's misnomer, and grammar is spelled with an "a" not an "e."
Computer can be an adjective when it is used to modify a noun, such as
forensics.
