Yep, completely agree. I have toyed with writing an app that identifies on OE or AS words (and tries to suggest OE/AS replacements). I heard on the BBC a long time ago that the use of older words makes prose clearer. That would make me inconsistent rebelling against the word 'stakeholder' so I will recant on that one.

"Stakeholder" feels like the good old days compared to what's now used in "agile" development.

Where I work there is a derivative of that work style. Choose 'we dont need specs' from agile and discard the rest of the process (intended to make up for the lack of specs). I call it 'Fragile'.
