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.

    Alpha as fuck... actually scrap that, I like that one

    "Wear it in good health"... for some reason that grates me everytime

    and +1 on fierce... I've only seen it used on second rate reality shows. If I heard it IRL violence could occur

    Baller is a close second.

    What do you propose to use instead? I'm not a big fan of it, but I use it a lot because I have a tough time coming up with alternatives.

    OMG yes. Every designer must have used this phrase at least once in the past month.

    To 'rock' as a verb, as in "you are really rocking that tweed jacket, Spoo!"

    And 'sick' when used as a compliment, as in "that is a sick tie you are wearing, Bleachboy."

    Fuck right off!

    Steez, what the fuck is steez?

    Steez is 90s hip hop slang for 'style.'
    not quite sure when it got co-opted by bloggers, but i wish they'd ease up a bit.

    And, you are Uber Chic, Brah.

    I meant to dial you up on the Steezaphone the other day when you were rocking that baller as fuck and supremely fierce Tom Ford number, but I was all buttoned up. Wear it in good health, brah.

    How about just 'excellent', or 'superb'. If you really must use 'baller', please restrict it to the sense of "one who has a lot of money", or is dressed in a way that reflects great wealth.

    Yeah, whatever happened to that? Are we just using douche and guido now?
