Well he did specifically ask about friend function overloading, and in that case he would be correct. Your first link does it exactly that way, the other two links use member functions instead.

NexusNemesis asked about definition of the term "unary operator overload" and cited wrong one.

Don't omit "by means of a friend function". He is correct in that case.

Well, "by means of a friend function" is in the definition part of the sentence, not in the term one. And, generally, that definition is wrong, because it describes only one particular case.

That is not my understanding, but since the question is sufficiently answered, there is no point in arguing about grammar ;-)
