'Skeptical' and 'critical' aren't insults.

Beyond Uranus (which is big and gassy)

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.
