Lake Superior State University, in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, has a 3-decade-old tradition of compiling an annual list of Banished Words: current buzzwords and -phrases that are so overused, misused or otherwise annoying that they deserve eternal banishment from the language.
The new list comes out on January 1st, so I wanted to get a head start on my nomination:
What does this even mean? Don't all voters have values that motivate their participation in the voting process? If I don't fit the rather narrow parameters that defines "values voter" in current usage, that somehow makes me a "valueless" voter? Excuse me?
I've already made my feelings known on the LSSU Banished Words website. Feel free to do likewise, with this idiotic term, or one of your own.
