No more harshing over “words” people use

There was a time when words such as webinar, impacted (except when referring to wisdom teeth), incentivize and irregardless made me cringe.

I’m mostly over that after tiring of online gripe fests rife with harshing the alleged destroyers of modern American English.

This TED talk pretty much cured me of all that, except that impactful still makes me want to puke.

That’s the editor in me.
