To the person who responded to my message by saying that words like "stabby" and "hatred of a thousand suns" add color to our language, my issue with these phrases is things like this that I see on message boards all the time "I can't stand Taylor Swift with the hatred of a thousand suns-she makes me stabby." Isn't that a little over the top? It reminds me of Blache Devereaux on the Golden Girls when she talks about how she feels as fresh as the honeysuckle in the morning when the dew hangs from the blossom and the sun kisses it with its golden glaze. There is adding description and there is going way overboard. Also when a phrase becomes overused it also loses it's meaning.

Adorkable.  Mostly because when someone act that way, it seems so fake.  "Oh, look at me.  Look how cute and goofy I am."

"My bad" - why, yes, yes it is your bad, now take some responsibility for it and stop acting like that's even a remotely acceptable statement.

In my world it is totally acceptable. It is definitely more acceptable than saying, "stop acting like that's even a remotely acceptable statement."

Iím not that fond of ďmy badĒ because itís a bit too cutesy, and often is an attempt to make light of a mistake thatís sometimes serious.  Itís like ďooooh, ooops, I guess Iím human.  Sowwy!Ē  I only use the expression rarely and for truly small infractions.

"Gotta go. The cat's on fire."

I can't remember if I mentioned this one earlier or not. But I seriously wish this phrase would be eliminated from EHell. It's one I abhor. And I find that I stop reading posts when I come across it. Everything a person says after that gets skipped.

I HATE this one.  Shortly after I first came across it here, there was an incident in my city where a young *adult* and his younger friend actually set a cat on fire.  Both were arrested and charged and if I remember correctly, the poor cat didn't survive.  I linked the story and asked for the phrase to be dropped, but apparently people weren't concerned about it.  Some even commented that this sort of thing doesn't really happen, after all.  ::) >:(

...and just because you link that phrase to a very specific incident that you saw does not mean you should expect a whole intenet community to drop it just because you (and maybe a handful of other people) don't like it. Eyerolling and accusations of people not being concerned - are you intentionally insinuating that we somehow support violence against animals? - does not make your case.

Everyone is going to use phrases other people don't like. That's life.

The term "childfree" drives me up the wall.  For me, it conjurs up images of a child being some sort of parasite to be avoided.

Bully bully bully bully bully bully bully bully. Here a bully there a bully, everywhere a bully bully. Say one mean thing, you are a bully. Scowl? Bullying behavior. Don't like a kid? Bully. Donít want to sit with someone? Bully. Every interraction that isn't sunshine, lollipops, and wee little ponies is bullying. Tired of hearing about bullying? Well, that's probably because you are a  bully. Bullying is bad, I get it; but  the Raise the Awareness campaign has gotten crazy.

LOL Ö or maybe I watch way too much kids tv, which hadnít occurred to me until right this minute, but is entirely possible. I take in an awful lot of cartoons.  :P

Oh, you're right. Write a politely negative review of a book, you're a bully. All the "bullying" is trivializing real actual bullying, which is real and nasty.
