Does anyone else think "critically important" is redundant? TMFBro

It usually is, used by the majority of people who know nothing about grammar, but it can mean something that is important and is about to blow up, or melt down, or cause some sort of catastrophe if it is not attended to immediately. Something important might not be immediately catstrophic, but it will still be a bad idea to ignore whatever it is.
