If they only banned the F word half the people in this county couldn't communicate or express themselves.
As far as the N word being banned.
I use it all the time.
No I will not.
No I do not.
No I have not.

This is a poorly written article with no guts to it and an article like this without a list is just stupid.
As for useless phrases, says who? The brainiacs at this one college? For example, "it is what it is" is a spiritual statement of surrender.
There should be a list of new words and what they mean, a list of pase words that are not in vogue anymore, words from the past that were new at the time.
Explanations of how the typical American accent in movies has changed. There was a lot of potential for this whitebread dull article.

``Reference'' as a verb is stupid, and it's in a quotation here by somebody claiming to be a ``wordsmith.''
STAY THE COURSE!

Wow! Honkie & Cracker (spelled right) are white racist words but is ok to be used by the Black race without any reverse discrimination.

Let's get rid of "Bling-Bling"

And if they can get rid of those trendy dotted phone numbers and get back to using dashes, I'll be happy.

You're stupid, and I'm going to tell you why.

There is NO such things as reverse discrimination. Either you discriminate or you don't. Your p o r k c h o p comments renders no response as you've proved you're an idiot.

Thats because the surge isn't working. The Taliban just blew up a funeral and killed a few dozen people in Baghdad. The surge isn't working. No wonder they want the word banned. Ban the word Muslim and insert Taliban instead.

Do you even read the news? Even Sen Reid admitted it is working.
I have friends who are Marines in Falujiah, they have written to me and told me that they are bored b/c there is nothing to do.
