    What's wrong with banter?

    Why are you linking me to the dictionary? I answered this earlier. They're used in different contexts. I don't think the word is stupid when used in the right fashion. And there's nothing 'wrong' with it per-se, this thread asked what words make you cringe and those ones do. I don't have to like it and if I don't like them, it doesn't mean they are 'wrong' and if you like them, it doesn't mean they are 'right'.

    "Hella" "lit" "bae"

    And although this is not strictly slang I have been noticing its usage more and more: "low key" just stop ****ing saying low key about every thing. Why is everything low key? Why is an obviously attractive person low key cute? Why is something that's reasonably funny making you low key laugh? Arrrrrrgh!

    Lol at the richer counterparts of TSR hating on the roadman language...

    'Fam', 'safe' and 'banter' is pretty much ingrained in my informal talk, it's how I talk to my friends.

    I promise I won't talk that way when I meet anyone from the middle classes and upwards though, if that offends them so much

    Ugh "haters"... Every time I hear someone say it I think, if you weren't such a ******* then you wouldn't have so many people hating you that you have to give them a collective name. Can't stand it when rappers rap about haters, the rappers from previous eras didn't have to rap about haters because they weren't hated on, it's hard to have people hating you when you're undeniably good.

    I can kind of understand very successful rappers doing it, but not 20 something nobodies on social networking sites.
