Besides the obvious hateful slurs, what is the worst word on the internet to come across? Is it "moist?" What about "technically," the word that inspired this word? Or maybe a word like "awesome" or "irony" which no one seems to use correctly?

Also, to make this perfectly clear, abbreviations and phrases don't count.

The problem with "literally" isn't so much the word "literally" as the post that, literally, always appears letting the OP know that they are using "literally" wrong.

"reboot" or "franchise" You know what they mean generally. But specifically, they are used wrong.

Pretty much any word that is commonly used by millennials.

"The?" "Pistachio?" "Penis?" "Peanut?"

Millennials are ~1980-2000.

I can't think of any word in particular, but rather a type of word. Any word that is used to define a group of people without exception for the cause of belittlement.

Here is a perfect example. Millennials are a vast group of people. The use of the word here does not distinguish between any type of millennial but instead assumes that all millennials are the same. These gross summations often lead to discourse between parties because a person used a term to discriminate against an entire group of people.

Other words may be:
Republicans
Democrats
Christians
Atheists
Muslims
Feminists
Blacks
Gays
Lesbians

Notice that none of these words are offensive, but they quickly become discriminatory and offense when people decide to be hateful...

This was probably more than you wanted, wasn't it, Hawk?

Wow, you learn something new everyday. I was always under the impression that the early 80's were the cut off for the end of Gen X. I didn't think that millennials started until the 90's. :oops:
