Buzzword Bingo


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.

No, it's not. "pre-owned" was made up by used car salesmen because the term "used car" had accumulated such a bad connotation. See also "rerun" and "encore presentation".
