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.

We are developers, which means our job is to simplify complicated and ill-expressed requirements in order to produce something elegant and useful. If you want to impress us then please just tell it to us straight. The less pre-processing we have to do the more we will be interested.

Danny, worry not. It's the way businesses do things these days. They pick those terms and expressions up like you'd find dog shite on a pavement in Paris. I'd like to meet the toe-rags who coined: blue sky thinking; thinking outside the box; pushing the envelope and others. I'd thank them for being a**holes.
If there is one thing more dangerous than getting between a bear and her cubs it's getting between my wife and her chocolate.
