Redundant writing

never more obvious than

artsy reviewers

"the most Compelling haiku i have read this year" Haiku Fred - World Poetry Weekly

"Compelling" Amelia Cshanis - POETRY!

"Riveting" Philip McKraken - Singapore Sling

"the most haiku I have ever read this year" - Tony

"…The… of… compelling…" TIMEly Magezine

NOW, I view this as a major problem as it promotes douche-bagged behavior (as well as the continuation of Megan fox's career as an [Mainstream] Actress) and the dumbing down of real reviews into broader douche-reviews, a new species of review, and a member of the greater problem, a plague upon our society, and a growing trend, one we can stop; YOU CAN HELP!

The problem is called Polybiabolicredundanicadicitis, and you can help stop it; all you need to do to protect yourself is go out to your nearest library, grab a dictionary, and read; thats all, no special secret, just education. It's a simple problem really, the masses level of education is declining, and as such, we are becoming less and less able to deal with verbose terminology, such as reviews containing new and unique perspectives and more over, ones that express them without using the words compelling, riveting, or Theatrical.
