Most overused word?

What word or phrase has you rolling your eyes every time you see it on the DIS?

Mine is TACKY. Just because it is tacky to you, doesn't mean it is automatically tacky by world standards. I have seen people call things tacky that I think are fine. They also say other things are the norm that I find totally tacky BUT to each their own. Right?

It's the word I'm trying to break myself out of using.

"Really".

Some times I cringe after I use it. LOL.

Guilty as charged! I even got "caught" overusing it and it ended up tagged! I'm sure it was mostly the "I've never met a donut I didn't like" part that the tag fairy was going for, but the "really, let's get real" part makes me cringe every time I look at it. I didn't even realize I had said it until after I saw it in my tag. Sigh.


Anyway, something that bugs me isn't a word, but the whole "OMG, you owe me a new keyboard because I just sprayed Diet Coke/Dr. Pepper/Pepsi/whatever all over it!" Does that actually happen as often as people make it seem? And why do I owe you a new keyboard? Obviously it didn't short out from the tremendous amount of cola you apparently just spewed upon it, or you wouldn't be posting your message. So just wipe it off and move on!

I hate when people say they gave it 110%

How can that be?

Discussion regarding religion is against the rules not using the word pray, prayers etc.

I can't decided between:
Snowflake
Bully
or (not a "word" but way overused IMO)

Well, maybe. It IS a religious act.

In previous threads when people have complained about prayer requests, mods have said they were allowed and that it was just discussion of religion itself (or debate about it) that was a problem.

YES!! What I totally don't understand is when there is a HUGE space, so you have to scroll down, and then there is no text at all, just the eating popcorn smiley. I have seen that many times. What's the point of the huge space?

Ok, I just tried it. I didn't make the space as long as other posters do. It's more like this:
































































I'm not trying to be obnoxious, just trying to illustrate my point.
