Here they are, the list of words and phrases we're not supposed to use in 2008. So, in light of that, I'm going to see if I can use them all at once. Très content

"Let's go WATERBOARDING during the PERFECT STORM. The SURGE in homeland security, POST 9/11, has been amazing. A WEBINAR can be pretty cool and IT IS WHAT IT IS. According to Wikipedia, Anu Garg is a WORDSMITH, and the definition of WORDSMITHING is 'The process of going through a document and making sure the best possible word is used in all circumstances.' I wonder if Anu Garg AUTHORED that definition, and if he didn't, who was the AUTHOR? BACK IN THE DAY, I used to go shopping with my sister on BLACK FRIDAY, before I worked in retail. This paragraph is totally RANDOM. This year, please make sure you GIVE BACK to your community, and make sure you buy ORGANIC fruits and vegetables from your neighbors who farm. It would be totally SWEET if we could DECIMATE the cost of a gallon of gas by nine tenths. Don't get so EMOTIONAL when you get thrown UNDER THE BUS, for saying something like 'And POP, there it was!'" Sourire

That was a lot harder than it looked! Rire

If we were really able to ban words, I'd be pleased to remove some...

So many of those words make me shudder!

Just like - "What happens in ____ stays in _____"

I've never actually heard someone say webinar. Guess I should consider myself lucky! Rire
