I've seen a lot of diaries lately that leave some of us without sufficient words of description or reaction.  As a crazed grammarian who was involved in the Net when your choices were .edu, .gov and The Well. (look it up) I've watch Netspeak evolve over time.  But as the world changes, language changes and sometimes the changes leave us without the words we need or the ones we have seem insufficient.  As an example, the word, "sheeple" for those who follow the scapegoat, or any goat for that matter.  Perhaps they are just following the dinner bell.
 This is an open list.  Open to addition, subtraction, modification, scorn, reaction and, probably, eventually, redaction.  Have fun, feel free to comment, coruscate and confiscate for your own use.  The 2014 Edition of Definition opens below the scroll.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
