Not trying to be a d-bag or say anyone is wrong or anything like that, but from my understanding a stiff legged deadlift is in fact a deadlift without bending the knees as described above, but unlike the animation given as an example, a correctly done stiff legged deadlift starts and ends from the ground, just as a regular deadlift would.
This is just my understanding. I may be wrong. This is how rippetoe describes it.

This is often confused with a romanian deadlift that does indeed start and stop from the top of the movement.

I want to stress that this is just my opinion and I very well could be incorrect here.
