I heard a guy say the word “meh” in real life today. He said it as if he’s been saying it his whole life. As if it were a word and not a stupid internet term to keep people from having to actually elaborate on an idea or opinion. Granted, I have no grounds to expect much more from the general public, especially considering that the people who are able to see R-rated movies have never really had to live without the benefit of the internet.
Still, I don’t have to like it.
“Meh” is not, nor has ever been a good term to use in discussion on the web. It’s dumb, disrespectful, and wickedly lazy. It’s like saying “whatever” during an argument, as if anything good can come out of it.
The word sucks, especially now that I discover a lot of people got it from The Simpsons. Fuck “Meh”. You are better than that. Even if you’re not, try to be.
It’s not much harder to type “I don’t have much to add to this” instead of “Meh”. In fact, the approriate thing to do in lieu of that stupid word is nothing at all. What better way to show disinterest than to do nothing at all?
But saying it out loud in public as if it serves any purpose, well you’re setting yourself up for something painful in the face. You’ve been warned.

I go, here’s the latest thing I’m adding to the blog. Each day I blog I’ll

further justify your click and to give the trolls a little more ammo.
