I heard about this board on the CC board, and just had to get out my biggest pet peeve!

I HATE it when someone is *trying* to sound educated and uses the "word" irregardless!!!! GGRRRRRR!!! Like, just because it has more syllables (sp) it has a stronger meaning. It not only *proves* that they are NOT educated, but it just grates on my nerves! What the heck does "not without regard" (a breakdown of the word) mean??? You only have to go as far as regardless to get your point across!!

(gosh, you know, that feels sooooo much better!)
