Re your comment below:

"We can't even agree on any sort of comprehensive definition of 'hb/noir.'"

Sure we can.

If it's tough and colloquial, it's hard-boiled.

If it's dark and sinister, it's noir.

If it's tough and colloquial AND dark and sinister, it's both hard-boiled and noir.

THAT was settled AGES ago. How did you manage to miss it?
