    Now that wasn't very tactical of you!!

    Everyone thinks they need to use it because it has the WOW factor. I can remember when the only person you would hear say "My bad" was some illiterate slob from the hood. Now almost everyone says it. Thank god I'm one of the few that refuses to.

    Hmmm, I was a peace officer back when S&W and Colts were king, and we really never had any designer terms or phrases. Political correctness was simply a theory back then.

    At the rate we are going, one of these days it wont be "politically correct" to say "tactical" because it will offend the weenies that see anything as "tactical"as being wielded by big bad mean ole men that are offensive to them.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    So we'll have to start being "politactically correct."

    Haha, this thread is a trip.

    Taking this topic to a different direction: I hate internet slang/jargon. I can't be the only one. Every time I read user comments at the bottom of a news article or something similar, it makes me want to pull my hair out. Off the top of my head, here is a few things that I can't stand:

    /anything. I hate the use of slashes that somehow are used to denote thoughts. Especially when used in succession.

    /Hate slashes.
    //Even more when used in succession.
    ///Makes me want to die.

    Secondly: The words HERP and DERP. And literally anything that immediately precedes or follows these two gawdawful words. Including images. If someone can't create a coherent thought, yet want to provoke someone, they use these terms. Quit being lazy, stupid, or ignorant and type a response. Don't cop out and type herp, derp, or a combination of the two. The internet will be a better place if you pour some water on your keyboard, instead. Better yet, just cancel your internet subscriptions.

    Thirdly: The cult use of the word has improperly. "I can has hotdogs!" or something similar. I think it stemmed from the whole lolcats thing.

    Fourthly: Which leads me to hate ...lolcats and anything to do with them. Ok, I see why some people still like the lolcats, but it is just old and lame, now. I might be a little biased on this one. ...Since I kinda hate cats and all...

    I'm sure there are many more, but these are the ones that stand out to me. Hopefully, I'm not alone in these sentiments. Fortunately, I don't think people on this forum toss these around very much.
