WORDSMITH - WORDSMITHING "I've never read anything created by a wordsmith - or via wordsmithing - that was pleasant to read." Emily Kissane, St. Paul, Minnesota.

Throw Miss Kissane under the bus, or better, water...board her in a perfect storm surge at Lake Superior State!

The ilk of Emily is the new Carrie Nation, but back in the day of Miss Nation people weren't so random and would usually give back what they took. Miss Emily though, saw fit to author a hit piece on Anu's wordsmithing, albeit her word piece didn't "pop".

I say we host a Webinar and totally decimate this post 911 witch...hunt. I don't mean to be emotional but it is what it is.

As usual, they totally ignore my excellent suggestion. "Banned words."

Adultescent. A word 'smithed ' by Precision Marketing.
Without the added comment, I would have taken this word for a new perfume.
For adolescents and teenagers to spray a touch of adulthood behind their ears before they go out. For adults with regressive tendencies also available: Infantescent.

(this word is branned)

One of the complaints, specifically about the word author as a verb, quotes Edwin Newman as wondering "if it would be correct to say that someone 'paintered' a picture?" I wonder if it would be correct to say that an usher ushed or that a tutor tuted?

I wonder how many people will send her a link to AWAD?? Also, the "banners" (heh) would do well to have better editing: they duplicated a comment in the last section.
