Been trying to think of an answer to the obvious question: what not-horrible term, or ordinary term with not-horrible common usage, should everyone be using instead?

Maybe techno-? (ignoring the bucket of electronic music) I couldn't think of one with roughly the same coverage. Sheeit. So what is my problem? Do I hate the word, or its use, or its abuse, or something else-- such as the way its users seem to be trying to manufacture the sound of knowing WTF they're talking about? Not sure... of course that last one would be the irritating one only because it proves to me that I CAN recognize that pattern, forces me to admit I've seen it before, and burns off any hope of using ignorance as an excuse.

Maybe that's all there was.

Might use Greasemonkey to change it to sighber or derper or whatever, something fun.
