I like to think that I AM educated in things that really matter, not trivial 'pop culture'. Hence I added this as a buzzword (i.e. a word that is currently in popular use.) Rightly or wrongly.
The changing of the meaning of an established word in the dictionary only proves to me that there are few new words in the English language only ludicrous changes to their meaning.
I imagine that this 'practice' has been going on for decades, if not centuries, in one form or another.
Your knowledge of it being used for a number of years only suggests that you are more aware of developments of this nature than I am.
This has not enriched my vocabulary at all. It has only served to condemn the abuse of the greatest language on earth.

And finally might I add: chat was meant for chat rooms not Forums. You only have to look at a few of the threads to see how disastrously that is heading.
:rolleyes:

Educated? Pmsfl You are just a pretentious freak who likes to think he’s superior to everyone else.
Go back to being Hells puppeteer, he’s missing you.

Nobody cares... keep up you silly little man

You're ever-desperate to gain my attention, SAD. Once again, you bandwagon a thread and make NO worthwhile contribution, as per usual.

I find it equally strange and risible that for someone who claims my opinion is inconsequential you are the first to comment on ANY opinion I may have in the Forums. I have underlined your earlier quote in this thread, for reference.
Now, might I strongly suggest that you reserve your chat room level of stupidity for the chat rooms, where I'm sure it is better appreciated.
:rolleyes:

P.S. Do try to come up with some new 'insults'. Even ones that you haven't thrown at hell2bwith76.

Fess up.
Where has this come from? Twice in the last few days, I've heard on the news that the BBC need to 'fess up". Do they mean 'confess'? Then why not say so! :rolleyes:

Standards of English are truly taking a rapid downward spiral.
I accept that we have a tendency to reduce words to monosyllables, especially in dialect, but this sort of thing is becoming the norm.
Similar examples are 'cos' and even 'coz'; def and deffo. I am sure that many more are currently in popular use.
Who cares if the Americans have adopted it? We should distance ourselves from this pernicious devaluation.
Why can't people uphold standards we once thought were worth upholding?

Starting a sentence with 'So.......' this annoys me so much I don't listen properly to the rest of what they have to say.

And 'Fur Babies' best I don't even get started on that one.
