My fixed gear. Think it could take a motor?
I think it would do great with a motor, but where will you put your feet whilst the pedals are spinning like egg beaters?

Seriously though, I'm with you: if I talk about fixies I'm talking single-speed fixed-gear wheel-and-pedal-always-move-together type bikes. For some people it's not just semantics, we're trying to be specific. I try not to get too bent out of shape about it though.
