psa: do not let us vote
People, democratic feedback is not for teh internets. The nerds will conquer everything. If you ask them what the 2007 word of the year is, they will tell you. If you ask them to name a humpback whale, they will indeed dub him. Their obsessive amount of man-hours on the web equals actual clout. Please, just let it stop.
Anyway, did anyone else see the hidden anti-Millennial bent to the other choices on Merriam-Webster’s word of the year list? “facebook”, “quixotic”, “apathetic”, “hypocrite”, “charlatan”. Outrageous.
