List Rules Vote up the words you never want to hear again in 2019.

Every year, new annoying internet slang pushes its way into the world. While a trendy new word can be fun to throw around at first, it's only a matter of time before words become so overused they lose all meaning. This 2018 slang list tries to comprehend the dumbest phrases and words you hate that blew up in 2018 – may all our 2019s be free of the tyranny of words like “witch hunt” and “canceled.”

Dumb internet slang isn’t new. From the moment AOL began, fake words and acronyms sprung up across the world. Now that everyone is online all the time, our ability to make new words - or grant old words an entirely new meaning - has become a kind of awful superpower. The worst words of 2018 are those that feel the most exhausting (you might even say "tired AF"). You’ve probably used all of this annoying slang without even knowing what it means! Keep reading for all the dumb slang of 2018 and vote up the words you want retired.
