A way of wording an expression in a way that specifies which individual, entity, or other thing committed an act or caused something to happen.
An example of an 'indirect attribution' is, "It was determined that 'unless exempt by diplomatic status, all persons entering the United States, including U.S. citizens, are subject to examination and search by Customs and Border Patrol officers'." Transformed into a "correct attribution" that statement would say something like, "In August of 2009, CBP Directive 3340-049 laid out its policies on searching electronic devices....In the course of a border search, with or without individualized suspicion, an Officer may examine electronic devices and may review and analyze the information encountered at the border.” Though correctly attributing an action increases transparency and accountability, and generally furthers the common good, it takes more time to say and/or space to write.

In HTML, an attribute of the img tag that allows persnickety browsers to display text in place of the image, or to indicate the content of the image to the visually impaired and search engine spiders.
In the event that an image displayed on a web page displays text or other information, the Alt attribute should be set with descriptive text so that persnickety browsers, visually impaired people, and search engines can read the description. A lot of SEO spammers get themselves banned from search engines by keyword stuffing their Alt attributes.

Some accessibility nuts like to ruin a webmasters day by insisting that every blasted, non-informative image must have an "Alt tag". Some of us cave in to their nonsense by using NiDE, but the truth is, there is no such thing as an Alt tag. Alt is an attribute of the img tag.

When a problem with a person is really a problem with the situation.
We tend to attribute people’s behavior to their core character rather than to their situation. It's the Situation, Not the Person.
“What a jerk!... see how he drives!”
“Fundamental Attribution Error honey, I wonder the situation he’s in that’s causing him to drive so crazy.”

"What do you mean?"
"He is the doctor in charge of emergency at the hospital few blocks away... don´t you remember?"

The tendency to mistake the superficial excitement derived from receiving text messages for the excitement bourne out of genuine chemistry between you and your text-happy new friend, especially prevalent in the budding stages of romance when a high degree of unfamiliarity is present between said parties. In the alternate context of an in-person or phone conversation, the same conversation would not be nearly as exciting.
It's no wonder your romances always crash so hard after you finally get to know the person, all the excitement between you is nothing more than the anticipation and reception of text messages. It's classic Con-Textual Attribution Error. Similar to the excitement and subsequent letdown of Christmas.
