Haha, I don't know how a lot of these word could be dropped from any vocabulary. Client?! Why is client on there? Alternatives to the word client are likely to be even more 'buzzwordy'.

well from what the news article said, they felt it de-humanised the local government... they thought that they needed to use more common english instead of buzzword english.

Was going to say maybe that's been banned in favour of using 'Customer'... but that's also been banned! :lol:

Dear good I have always hated the word proactive!

When it came up in the simpsons I laughed myself silly!

Cartoonist: Excuse me, but "proactive" and "paradigm"? Aren't these just buzzwords that dumb people use to sound important?
[backpedaling]
Cartoonist: Not that I'm accusing you of anything like that.
[pause]
Cartoonist: I'm fired, aren't I?
