Word Ban

I am going on the record that I want the word "hack" banned from modern speech. I am sick of hearing about "life hacks" and such. Hacking should be about doing things that you're not supposed to do and not about simply taking a shortcut.

The other word, which seems to be more related to the business world, is "disruption." I thought it was always a bad thing, but it now seems to refer to changing of attitudes or going against the usual thinking. Sorry, it just sounds stupid.
