I know, Dave.  The name for this phenomenon escapes me, too, at the
moment, but I am aware of it, of course.  Actually, my message was more
tongue-in cheek than anything else, but I am concerned with the number
of such words that are accumulating in the language, because it does
make it very difficult for someone whose first language is not related
to English.

In any case, the language will go where it will, regardless of what we
do here today...!!
