I Think Not

Daily Prompt: No, Thank You – If you could permanently ban a word from general usage, which one would it be? Why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us NO.

I’m going to do a picture for this prompt for a change! Here it is – it doesn’t exactly say “NO” but it looks like it would be a good idea not to proceed past this point.

Stop

Go no further!

Weirdly, this was on a way-marker post I saw during a forest walk in Coed y Brenin forest park during my recent holiday in Wales. It looked like just another trail and was marked as part of a mountain bike route.

Fortunately, the trail I was following went the other way, so I didn’t have to find out what this rather ominous sign referred to :-).

For the record, I wouldn’t ban any words from general usage. Words are just a way to express thoughts and ideas. Banning the word doesn’t ban the idea – a new word would quickly be invented to express it.
