Unfortunately, ""repost"" or ""erection"" didn"t make the list of candidates. What other I-A-B words didn"t make it.

^Unfortunately, most people think of that as a sex-crazed cartoon man rather than a swamp or precarious situation.

I voted for W00T, it`s the closest thing to l33t

I think judging by comments it`s close between W00T and Sardledom...

w00t seems a bit too old to be 2007`s word. There really wasn`t much choice there, was there? I would have to agree with `apathetic` describing the general feeling of the year the best.

And I get a chuckle out of ANYONE claiming ANYTHING is a `de-evolution` of language. There is no such thing. Language is merely a form of communication, and it is constantly changing to form the changing environment around it. That is truly the very essence of evolution. There is no `lesser` language, it doesn`t work that way.

(Ironically, the term `de-evolution` really is an abuse of language itself, as that is nonsense. Evolution isn`t a one-way street to `better`, it is merely change over time.)

Anyways, sardoodledom is much cooler. (lol AKappy)

I find it funny how people who say netspeak is the de-evolution of the human race when about 70% of people who use 1337 are nerds that have an IQ of about 170.

W00T! There is no other alternative. For it singlehandedly symbolizes the gradual de-evolution of our brains thanks to the internet. w00t WILL go down in history.

So I`m guessing I`m the only one who voted for Apathetic (or whatever version of that word was on the list)? It`s always been one of my favorites.

No other word quite captured the public mentality of this entire year (read "generation") better than that one.

W00t... Are you kidding me? Merriam Webster is now recognizing that as a word?

And people wonder why I hate any form of netspeak. Yay for the decline of the English language! :)
