Readers familiar with the development of object-oriented programming will recognize the phenomenon.
As this programming paradigm became popular, people started calling all manner of things " object-
oriented " in an attempt to attract attention and approval – a state of affairs satirized by the title of the 1989 paper, " My Cat Is Object-Oriented "


I noticed a phenomenon like this recently on Amazon when sellers started describing everything as "tactical".
