The Buzzword Bingo forum is a place to post examples of ludicrous, convoluted and meaningless buzzwords and marketing drivel dreamed up by those seeking to sound more important and meaningful than they actually are.

Truthfully, it's a pronunciation thing. "I could care less" comes out a lot easier in most American accents than "I couldn't care less", and the syllable is dropped according to the principles of syncope.
 
... or should I have explained that with more synergy for continued excellence in our field as we go forward?
