DL used to be a site with people so intelligent some threads were like college seminars, only more fascinating. Now any reply that isn't snide and short gets shot down with this lame-ass comment. Pathetic.

"Oh, dear."

I also remember a time when we picked on the grammar of homophobes and freepers (same thing?) only, for the purpose of shaming them into leaving. Now even typos are mocked, which is just pointless, and many of the "oh, dear" comments are inaccurate (made when there's no mistake), which is, again, just pathetic.

r74 - That's a really old expression that's making a comeback; think of putting a pin in a grenade. Your boss's use is more or less correct, although since the expression already implies that "it" will be saved for later, adding "and get back to it later" is a bit pin-headed.

"I was, like, _____, and she was, all, ____"

God, how I hate it, R174.

r175 Don't forget "I go." That's the most annoying.."So I go, yeah and he goes okay.."

"Whatever" said to end an argument.

I'd rather they just said fuck you, I'm done talking and don't want to hear your stupid voice anymore. At least that would be honest.

Talk to the hand, R177!

Oh my god r178, I would cheerfully strangle whoever put that little fucking gem into our vocabulary.

R26,the latter one always confused me...well,the player IS the integral part of the game,is he not?

r180 It's just a fucking dumb way of saying, "Hate the sin, love the sinner."

R176, I don't find "I go" as universal as "I was, like, _____." "I go" reminds me of something you'd hear in NJ or Brooklyn during the '60s.

I always picture the largest man in the world whenever someone says "bwahaha." He can only fit in a caftan, but wears no earrings.

"You need to..."

As in the courtesy-free demand of "You need to back the fuck off, bitch" which has filtered down even to the telephone messages left by the business world: "You need to tell him that his dentist appointment is on Tuesday, at 3:00".

("No, I ask that strangers who call my home and disturb my peace should pose their requests politely and then I'll happily pass along a message, but don't mistake your problems with my needs.")

"the F bomb" instead of "fuck." If you absolutely feel you can't say "fuck," opt for "the F word," which is far less pussified than "the F bomb."
