I Don't Like This Word

    Actionable

    Actionable.  Worse than the C-word, but you can say it in public. (It doesn't even get the spell check squiggly!  That is beyond pathetic.)

    "speak To"

    I know, it's two words. I dislike having someone say "we need 'to speak to' this problem". We speak to other people. We speak about or of problems.

    I'd Like To Speak To That Point -- Gdi!

    No!  No!  No!  My mom even says this one.  No one speaks TO a point.  They speak ABOUT a point, in favor of a point, or regarding a point.  We speak TO other people.
