I’m seeing a word popping up around the blogosphere and I want to state my opinion. I’ve seen it here, here, and many other places. Just google the word and countless other examples appear. The word is “reax”, short for reactions. Here’s my
opinion demand, voiced to all bloggers who use “reax”: Stop.
If you can’t be bothered to type the extra five letters in “reactions”, you shouldn’t have a blog. Maybe you think you’re one of the cool kids because you use a slang word, but you’re not. You’re lazy. Stop being lazy.
I will, of course, continue writing “the Internets”. File this entry under “Hypocritical but correct.”
