    Filter 'Dire'

    Let's face it, it's:

    1. The most abjectly unfunny cliche being pegged around CW.
    2. Responsible for the most one word, decidedly unconstructive posts since AWTA.
    3. Can be made redundant with one fell swoop.

    You are now my new hero. I agree entirely with what you have said.

    'Dire' is the most cliquey piece of tripe since dog food manufacturers introduced the goodness of marrowbone jelly

    And 'acronymisation' of phrases that take 2 seconds to type is just plain evil

    Not going to happy in this lifetime. I think the "powers that be" are the main offenders tbh, e.g, Prince even has a dire picture.

    Dire poll

    Self explanatory, really.

    Can you do something constructive and merge this with the thread, Cribb?

    I'm in favour, if it means woeful gets more usage, but as Matteh said it would be difficult as the word is generally related to Battrick.

    Dire should be added to the blacklist, but I cannot bring myself to vote for the option "Yes, its dire"

    Your whole comment was feeble or at best mediocre

    Nah look, woeful's just one step better than abysmal tbh, and we all know that's pretty much worthless.

    Getting beaten to it for everything in here...

    How can you do this?
    From Europe to Australia, America to China, and Africa, India, Pakistan, etc, inbetween, you can spot a CW-er in any crowd, on any street, at any sporting event when you hear our "anthem" word.
    All against are DIRE!
