Howcome some agnostics do not accept that atheists do not accept the existence of deities, at all?

When did atheist stop meaning that for them?
What makes them think they have the right to redefine the word and apply it to their own beliefs?

(you might notice that I have put some agnostics to acknowledge that this isn't the case for everyone)
Update: If you think we use faith, then you give things that so far have been proven correct have the same merit as things that are only mathematically possible, which makes your stance the same as a creationist fundie, if you ask me.
Update 2: I didn't realise that agnostics found reasons to be homophobic just by looking at my avatar and in a way, you are beginning to show me what it actually means (ie US homophobic fundie type, not really fussed about the truth)
