Hater : nonsense word that gets used and abused ,when one criticises or argues a view that may be unpopular , especially of that view is an informed one .

Salty : do I really need to explain that one ?

There’s a plethora of words that should be not used in sports, especially American sports commentary eg “greatest of all time” , “best ever” ,”my top 10” .... often referring to sports people that have done little to merit the accolades /or such achievements aren’t seriously assessed or the quality of their opponents . UFC and especially Joe Rogan is a hoor for it . Likewise NBA coverage ,it’s hard to listen to

I agree, sometimes it's the only word that will do. The last time I called someone a cúnt was when a young woman who was busy texting while driving around a busy roundabout came close to ploughing me down at at a pedestrian crossing, she was incensed that I used the word.

Are we all agreed on 'Banter' so?..

Can we mobilise the Twitter mob to move forward with it?..

We could say it's cultural appropriation..

It’s clearly used in the context of domestic matters. A non national in Ireland clearly means a person who is not a national of Ireland. Likewise ,if the word was used in say Spain, it would then mean a person who is not a Spanish National

It’s a lazy and somewhat inaccurate way to say foreigner ,I guess

CLUSTER

It's being used a lot of late in a COVID-19 context but everytime I hear it I think of haemorrhoids or anal warts

The meaning of words gets abuse though. People use words in a statement or a rant and it’s clear that they haven’t a Scoobey doo as to what they mean . So ignorance shouldn’t be tolerated
