moot point (plural moot points)
1) An issue that is subject to, or open for discussion or debate; originally, one to be definitively determined by an assembly of the people.
2) (US) An issue regarded as potentially debatable, but no longer practically applicable. Although the idea may still be worth debating and exploring academically, and such discussion may be useful for addressing similar issues in the future, the idea has been rendered irrelevant for the present issue.
I bet you just read the very first definition of the word "moot" on dictionary.com and took it at face value in your post. Thank you for your time.
