I thought that too and Googled it. It's apparently a word in its own right now; to stalk someone online through Facebook/Twitter etc. is creeping.

This is why English has the most words compared to any language. People keep adding stupid words to English dictionaries.

Quick, someone call the Empire and tell them we're the hidden rebel base. Challange the Borg to an old timey boxing match. Let the Go'uld know we're better then they are. Inform the Shadows that they are self entitled alien emo boomers and should just die off already. Anything. We don't deserve to live anymore.

Oh no, this goes far beyond that. As a species we would simply infect the more advanced races to our consistent lowbrowing of our own language. Eradication is the only option.

Words need to have a standard definition across the language, not be acronyms, and not be fucking retarded.

I don't see why any of these words or abbreviations or acronyms would be added to a dictionary. They'll mostly be forgotten in a few months or a year, I hope.

I saw this 12 year old kid in the train last week with this gigantic pixel art chain around his neck which just straight up said "YOLO" on it. Didn't think anyone would go so far with it :/

Creeping and Tweeps are the only decent two.

YOLO is an abbreviation. I dunno why it needs to go into a dictionary.

And I keep passing a "Ted Yoho" sign on the way to work and always read it as "Ted YOLO" fucking GAF. :|

I was going to ask what's already been asked...YOLO is an acronym. I don't feel like it deserves a spot. On top of that, it's a "word of the month" sort of thing, just like Tebowing (which nobody says anymore).

Bad idea.

Cray is slang for crazy, and people who use it are forcing it. I've never found reason to use cray vs crazy. Ever.

The rest of the words are just -_-

E: Creeping is the ONLY word on that list I've used. The rest I have either never heard of (a majority of them) or simply don't belong (see above).

Tweep = Twitter peep/AKA: followers. It's generally used by celebrities. "Alright, tweeps: What outfit should I wear to the [insert event here]" type of thing.

Please read the rest of the statement. It was sort of a base to the argument rather than the full substance.
