If you could block your computer from ever displaying another news article containing a given word in the article's title, what would that word be?

Asked by ibstubro (18765points) December 18th, 2015

“Kardashian” inspired my question.

I wish to never see another article in my news feed containing the word Kardashian.

That was my first thought too, @ibstubro. But you know what? I think they’re a very temporary phenomenon, and it won’t be that long before people start saying “Who?”

My second choice was “split,” as in ”<Celebrity Name 1 that I never heard of> and <Celebrity Name 2, ditto> split.”

But if I could really do this, I think I might settle for “things,” as in “21 Things You Need to Know About <Celebrity Name 3 that I never heard of>,” or “7 Things You Might Find in Your Fast-Food Burger” or “84 Things To Know Before You Plunk Down a Deposit on That Medieval Castle.”

I would exchange the word: Coward in it’s place.
It seems that some are excitable over the title and the perceived power over others they believe it wields.
I would suggest it be changed something more derogatory, but then that would leave some under the same categories, without their descriptions.
Coward(s) it is.

“SJW”, “Feminist”, “Political Correctness”.
Because the people who employ those terms nowadays are usually repulsive sexists, misogynists, racists and nazis.

“Celebrity.” “Royal” and possibly “baby” as runner-ups.
