Are we referring to "macarons" as "macaroons" now?

From time to time, I'll see posters on chowhound searching for the best "macaroon" when what they're really looking for is the light, airy French cookie rather then a heavy coconut one. This NPR piece from today makes it seem as if the two words are interchangeable, even though to me, they refer to two wildly different desserts. Thoughts?
