violentsalvation: I can't even pronounce artis anal.
phaseolus: DontMakeMeShushYou: I want to find the person who coined the term "tween" "yambags" and kick them in the yambags hooshgaflurbins. That is all.
GAT_00: I've never even heard those four words before.

theflatline: I remember when I was in Philly at a Drexel graduation party in 2002 and this kid says to me "We are going to flame some oat and listen to the D".
moothemagiccow: zedster: [www.ibiblio.org image 530x281]Wonders what's wrong with pingPing is fine in its intended use, but I knew this moron coworker who said he'd ping people when he finished an assignment, as a vague substitute for email or IM, and maybe even sms or a phone call.
JayCab: The Documentation provided within the presented article is a quality demonstration of the synergistic benefits of leveraging a diverse vocabulary to follow best-practices and establish a fully win-win paradigm within the larger culture of the enterprise./hates that none of those words flagged spell-check.
Sybarite: What exactly am I supposed to call quinoa?
ProfessorOhki: Also, ping has a slightly different meaning than "contact." Contact implies initiating a new thread of conversation. While ping can sometimes be used in that context, it's usually more along the lines of, "We sent Bob an e-mail and it's been a month; someone make sure he's still alive."
Mikey1969: God, I hate these farking "Words I don't like because I don't know their meaning" articles that come out EVERY YEAR at this time. A lot of these have perfectly legitimate uses, although I would have to say that if I ever met someone who called himself, or or someone he knew, a "bro-grammer", I'd probably strangle him.
JerkyMeat: There is absolutely nothing wrong with vagina and the same goes for moist vagina.

While ping can sometimes be used in that context, it's usually more along the lines of, "We sent Bob an e-mail and it's been a month; someone make sure he's still alive."Yeah, that's how I see it, too. They can take "ping" off the list and replace it with "action item". We had a project manager that loves that term. The first time he asked me "can you take that as an action item?", I truly had no idea what he meant. I asked. I don't remember what he said, but it was pretty convoluted. I think I finally got it, though. I asked, "when you say, 'take as an action item', do you just mean, 'do'?" He looked kind of pissed, and thought about it, and finally said, "Yes, I guess so." He was fired shortly after that. It was for unrelated reasons, but I like to pretend it was because he used that stupid term.
scottymac: See also: "craft beer". Should be right up there with "artisanal".
