Why business people speak like idiots
Found this via Helge Tennø
Fight the Bull is a website dedicated to eliminating business jargon. Some nice stuff here.
You can even download a toolbar that will scan your document and take out all the bull. With the Bull Composite Index, you can see how jargon-filled your Word doc or Powerpoint slides are.
The bit I like best is their Mystery Matador. If you get an email from a colleague that is full of bull - you can paste it into the Matador and anonymously send your colleague's email back to them from this site, with a score on how much bull was in their original email.
Let the fight begin.
