Vote now for your worst net neologism
ROFLMAO? No, actually
Reader poll It's the traditional ta very much to all of you who responded to our call for nominations for the worst net neologism - Mephistophelean vocab so hideous in countenance that it must be viewed only as a reflection in a bronze shield lest the reader be turned immediately to stone.
With that in mind, you're advised to approach the list below with extreme caution. Before you do, a couple of points. We've grouped some related words/abbrevations together, such as ROFL, ROFLMAO and ROFLCOPTER, while prefixes or suffixes commonly tacked on to just about any word that can stand it are shown with an * , such as *tard (fucktard, commentard) and i* (iPod, iBook, iCon). Same applies to *2.0 (Web 2.0, etc, etc) - you get the idea.
Right, get voting, and don't say you weren't warned...
We had a lot of votes for "automagic(ally)", but just as many people willing to defend it. Fight it out amongst yourselves. Oh yes, and those of you with a violent allergy to "mobe" are referred here.
