this too shall pass
I'm sure folks will chime in on this again; but if you're interested in some opinions, check out the "pet peeves" and "nouns as verbs" threads under Q&A.

i don't hate "prioritise".
i think new words, whether they are short cuts made from nouns or not, can be useful.
it seems to depend on the way they're used. people who use them and don't see the humour in what they're doing are not much fun; on the other hand, people who hate them, without seeing the humour in what they're doing, are not much fun either!
