1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    "From the get-go" negatively impacts me.

    Not a buzzword per se (that must have pissed a few people off), but needlessly adorning perfectly capable words is...um...needless.

    The latest Canadian Dept. of Finance Economic Statement includes a section entitled "Forward Agenda".

    "Right-size" and "rationalize," both in the context of getting rid of staff to cut costs (the L-word).

    "Hiring freeze" is pissing me off a lot this month.

    These are particularly annoying when you're the one being right-sized/rationalized.. [​IMG]

    Starting sentences with "Having said that,..." or "With that said,...".
