The American Dialect Society has voted on the word of the year for 2006. The winner is "plutoed".
to pluto/be plutoed: to demote or devalue someone or something, as happened to the former planet Pluto when the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union decided Pluto no longer met its definition of a planet.
The Management finds this word of limited use and will continue to employ "demote", "devalue", "misprize", and "betamax".
The word voted most likely to succeed is "YouTube".
YouTube: as a verb, to use the YouTube web site or to have a video of one’s self be posted on the site.
The Management declares that, while the YouTube is useful and entertaining, the practice of posting videos of oneself for self-aggrandizement is a waste of valuable bandwidth on the interweb. Just like this website.
And it’s got rings around it.
According to the Anagram Finder my name is a tidy, amoral alias. I’m also ye rival. Who knew?

Urban Dead is a free massively multi-player web-based game. All one needs is a web browser and an unnatural hunger for the flesh of the living.
“A widespread investigation of funeral homes, morgues, and hospitals has concluded that the unburied dead have been returning to life and seeking human victims.”
1 – It’s a blog. The Management is lazy. Old posts will be imported and the blog evilized as the Management finds time. Blogging will allow better categorization of posts, let you earthpeople to leave comments (no need for a guestbook), and has an RSS feed. The last means that since we’re lazy about updating this page you mortals can be lazy about reading it.
B – The world is safe. The Management owns malafide.com until 2016. Renewing was a lot harder than it should have been. The Management had to use a telephone, for Elvis’ sake, to contact Go Daddy to resolve a problem with our account. Tres Vingtième Siècle!
Γ – Spam sucks. Because of excess spammage the Management has been forced to limit the amount of email addresses that we use. Until now ANYTHING(at dingus)malafide.com made it’s way to us. We’ve restricted email to two addresses. They are webmaster(at widget)malafide.com and latiolais(at thingy)malafide.com. This restriction will allow us to use better spam filters thus lowering our blood pressure and extending our lifespan. A longer lifespan means we’ll outlive all those goddamned hippies. There are actually more than two e-ddresses but they’re all you need to know, sunshine.
Enfin – Holy blue suede! 08 JAN is Elvismas. Be someone’s teddy bear. Be a hunka-hunka burnin’ love. Don’t be cruel, though.
