    Can't we all just agree that it, whatever, it is, is just another word for Effed Up?

    No. You have a COMPACT edition of the OED on your shelf.

    Only if it were a day devoted to Pedants, multiple, as opposed to a day devoted to pedantry.

    I don't think that there is a proper spelling for that [marketing department buzz] word. It's a word that weaseled its way into the American lexicon like "moisturize", or "melty".

    ‘I’m going to relic my Strat’. Spot the verb? Or, come up with a verb that conveys exactly the same action.

    Helping the world with its real issues...thanks. Also, when using the word “add”, remember “ad” means advertisement and “ad” means to constitute an addition. Spread the word.

    Few off the top of my head: "artificially age", "distress", "antique"

    It seems that you and I share the same dirty mind. Anytime I see the word 'lick', I tremble a little.

    Sure, big words can be used by oppressors. Oppressors will use anything they know how to use.

    But I think my point stands. I'll put it in small words--telling people how to talk is a jerk move. Unless they're your child, or they asked for a critique.

    If the definition in the dictionary does not line up with common usage, that definition is wrong--or perhaps obsolete.

    A lot of techy stuff uses nouns as verbs. As we used to say when writing technical documentation:

    "there is no noun that we cannot verb"

    Lol, okay - you have me curious now. Not that I doubt you, but can you quote (or point to) any examples of actual technical documentation with 'verbified' nouns?
