That's exactly right.
 
2009-07-19 10:28:58 PM
Darn, does this mean I have to use a different affirmative?

/Absolutely.
 
2009-07-20 12:16:03 AM
Definitely right there, CNN.
 
2009-07-20 01:23:14 AM
Whatever. Really? My bad.
 
2009-07-20 02:52:34 AM
I kick it up to 100% absolutely for things that need some extra yes.

I haven't heard that word be overused, also, I always say "indeed". I can't believe someone was paid to write this, or that someone claims the OJ Simpson murder trial has any bearing on the word absolutely or it's use/overuse lately.

No one gives a shiat if or how you got banned. It's not hard to get banned on fark.

Boredom is a biatch, eh?
It amazes me that I have less to do right now than sit here and read (and respond to) tripe like this.
 
2009-07-20 03:46:56 AM
It doesn't even make sense as an affirmative.

It's 1 in the morning on a Monday. It's not like there's a club thumping at this hour on this day where I live. Plus, it's fun to verbally club hipster-wannabes that look like something dragged out of a cave in Afghanistan.

That mash-up of Rick Astley and Kurt Cobain sums up the entirety of post-millenial culture in one post-ironic musical mélange. It encapsulates both the rebellious nature and restraint on expression inherent to the modern musical landscape and the wider culture. Plus it's a perfect-storm of a hook.

I called him a rebellion-inciting word-that-rhymes-with-bike in his masturbacongratulatory thread. I meant it in a purely-respectful-while-completely-irreverent tone though, not as actual hate speech. I guess subtlety is lost on mods with as heavy of a workload as they had at that time.

/5 posts a second, calling Tatsuma an Attractive and Successful Banker-American, MOD SMASH!

You betcha.
 
2009-07-20 04:03:12 AM
I have absolutely not been seeing this word get used too much. Perhaps this retardation, like others, is limited to the CNN offices.

There is no way in the world that I can figure out how such an innocent thread turned into such a complete flame-fest. If you were arguing over OJ's guilt or innocence I might comprend that in an amazed sort of way.

I think "not so much" is overused, but it seems to be tapering off a bit...
