This post is the opposite of long.

I have noticed a strange thing lately. There is now a tendency to say things like: “That’s not good. That’s the opposite of good,” or something with a similar construction. Perhaps it is a quote from something; I don’t know. I wonder how it started.

The main reason I bring it up is that, to me, it always evokes the way people said “ungood” instead of “bad” in “Newspeak”.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
