The Official Banning Of The Phrase "just My Two Cents" Thread!!

This HAS to be the most over-used phrase, and four words on this board!!
Im sure it must be a huge statement over there in the states, but i've never seen a phrase appear so often, anywhere?!!

So please, post here if you'd like to see this nasty little phrase removed, and never seen again on this board!




p.s - I am very bored at work right now, and have started this thread, purely for my own amusement!
I fully expect no-one to post here, and probably to be closed by a moderator!

I'd rather ban the phrase "don't get your panties in a bunch, people" or just the usage of the word "people" in that sentence. I hate when forum members write that way, as if they are some all-knowing powerful "Oz" bringing calm to everyone. Whew! Thank God for these members and their infinite wisdom and sage advice - they must know what they are talking about because they called us "people".

I don't know if I've ever heard either phrase actually used in real life. They're used a lot on the internet, though.

I am really really getting sick of the phrase, 'Everyone is entitled to their own opinion etc.' No shit!! We know by now! I am getting very tired of this. Ban this one instead.

oh and that 'is it just me' and 'Am I the only one who...' is getting annoying as well. Say it again and you'll be banned I say.

The stuff about 'everyone's entitled to their opinion' or 'that's your opinion' is the weakest bullshit on the face of God's earth. It's a cop out. If you (generic 'you') don't like what someone says, counter it. Refute it. Give a goddamn argument.

People! Stop getting your panties in a bunch. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Is it just me or am I the only one who I know I will be flamed for this?

(Okay...that last sentence makes no sense. )

Just my two cents...

Cheers,

M

In argument for non-argument, I use the phrase once in a while only when I think the argument itself is stupid. I use it as a sign of ambivalence with the topic and revulsion over the subsequent argument.
