I hope you don't find that at all surprising. Did you think even for a minute that any of the self-aggrandizing ignorants ever bothered to open a dictionary to learn the meaning of the buzzwords they use?

They use buzzwords because the words are buzzwords and not because the buzzwords mean anything. For an excellent treatise on the subject, see any of Scott Adams' various compilations. Received on Tue Jun 27 2006 - 12:51:36 CDT
