    Link: Vote for the 2007 Word of the Year - Unfortunately, ``repost`` or ``erection`` didn`t make the list of candidates. What other I-A-B words didn`t make it.

    I voted for sardoodledom. Proceeding climax, she was covered in my glorious sardoodledom.

    I may be unclear as to what the definition is.

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

    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.

    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 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.)
