I’m starting to find my power, here. A few years ago, I demanded that “bloggy” and all derivatives thereunto appertaining be excised from the language. I haven’t seen it much lately. It is a sweet victory indeed, and I claim all credit.
And while my recent demands for the extermination of “Internets”,”Truthy/truthiness”, “Dee di deeeee”, “Hel-looooo” and “It Is What It Is” are still developing, I feel it important to add to the hit list.
To “take (something) to the next level” is the next victim of my one-man linguistic purge.
Don’t say it. Don’t tolerate others saying it.
Leave it alone.
That is all.
