R69, don't forget "swap out", commonly used by cooks: "If you don't like walnuts, you can swap out pecans".
Which brings me to "substitute" being misused at least 99% of the time: "I'm allergic to cranberries, so I substitute them for blueberries"; "The cheese in the recipe was too expensive so I substituted it for a combination of cheeses I had on hand"; etc. The word is mutating into something that means the opposite of what the writer intends to say.

[quote]R149: When discussing race, some version of "I don't care if you're black, white, brown, purple or green" is in fact, a racist statement.
This idiot needs a remedial course in logic, mind-reading and an understanding that cliches sometimes can be taken literally or spoken honestly.
R149 shows herself to be a racist of a particularly foul kind.

All the "my truth", "my lived experience" type expressions are bullshit peddled by SJWs and people like Harpo. I even had an argument about it with a journalist acquaintance who said something about how her responsibility was to report "the victim's truth" in stories about rape or sexual harassment allegations. She is not concerned about reporting whatever facts can be ascertained, only about taking sides and reporting her favored side's "truth". Unprofessional nonsense.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
