Thought of the day: the commonly-used internet exclamation “w00t!” should be permanently banned.

According to Wikipedia, this common internet term means “slang interjection meaning “hooray“, or an expression of joy.”

Please join me in eradicating the usage of this dorky-sounding term and help make the internet a better place for all.

  1. Please allow me to be juvenile and retort that you’re a dorky-sounding term. I like using W00T and there’s nothing you or the internet can do to stop me. Actually, I think it’s the fact that it’s purely internet-y that the term W00T is so popular. You can’t really say it (it comes out Woot or Whoot or some variation thereof), so it’s a word that can solely be used on the internet or in writing. It’s special and unique, just like everyone else (or I am… something like that).
