Now. If you have read my post from earlier today, you would already know that this particular word is also on the 2006 banned word list. So what's up with this shit? Is the Banned Word List comparable to the tabloids, running an innocent word into the ground before its time? Is the Lake Superior State University on a quest to see how much it can influence our word usage?
Is Merriam-Webster Online going against the flow as a show of independence?
Enquiring minds want to know.
