Opted to commemorate hitting 100,000 viewers (a milestone that the Kingdom is set to hit today or tomorrow) with yet another update to my old comedic Words/Phrases That I Hate article.
"Regardless of how much people may want to believe otherwise, human history has never been a steady march towards progress, instead being more akin to the wayward zig-zagging of drug addiction recovery, littered with periods of regression and failure" is the truest thing you have ever said here.
Thank you kindly, @ShadowM00n! ^.^
I especially loathe the term "content creator"; YouTube was ruined precisely by the types of people who enthusiastically embraced it to describe themselves -- that is, the types who see the site as nothing more than a place to upload monetized clickbait videos and make money. The entry for "uneducated" is also excellent and sharply accurate.
Thank you, lolwut. Yes, YouTube and the Web are large were sacked by dirty peasants who have no respect or understanding of our culture and hijacked it as a way to make money from lazy, clickbaity filth. It's lamentable to see the once great YT become a third world market full of peddlers screaming at you about whatever bullcrap they're selling all at once.
From your May update, the whole "You're so quiet" thing rattles me... the suggestion once got back to me (from people that had obviously been talking about me) that I needed to "get out of my shell". This was years before I'd even considered 'being autistic'.
Content Creator (along with Influencer) are ones which irritate me, also. Most Content Creators I see who call themselves that, don't really create anything at all, they just browse the internet, see what 'trendy' things everyone else is doing and just copy that, or create ads disguised as articles and videos for companies that just want to take your money, and try to appear hip, unique and cool when they are -
not. The term Woke is another one. Other than referring to someone who's just woken up from sleeping, I don't even know what that is supposed to mean, and your description of the modern left in regards to using the term fascist/nazi is spot on.
@bmh I loathe that phrase, and really need to mention it the next time I update this article. Why is it always extroverts telling introverts to get out of their shell, and never anyone telling extroverts to get back in their shell and leave other people alone?
@Bright-Eyes Very true! I loathe influencers for that very same reason. It's just people that make a career out of exploiting other people's work, selling bullcrap, and flooding the Web with garbage. The whole term "woke" is so nonsensical that I am truly convinced it was invented to serve as a sort-of "uniform" for people who can't think and just blindly parrot whatever they hear others saying.
