Notes on the english language

When did "upleveled" become a word? And how come up is apparently
synonymous with dumbing down. As in - you gave me too much detail so
please uplevel it. Best spin ever.

Meanwhile, when did a champion become "your greatest supporter"? Let
your champion take the message to management. Make sure you have a
champion? Champions used to perform at the pleasure of their sponsors
- the queen or some nobility - not as the supporters of those
sponsors. For what queen needs some brute to support her?

The english language is in peril, my friends. Particularly when hung
over I can be accused of having an overly extensive vocabulary.
