I’m Going to Blow Up “Pinterest”

Recently people have been telling me I should check out “Pinterest,” an online pinboard.

I went to their site. At the top it says, “Request an invite.”

News flash, Pinterest. “Invite” is a verb. “Invitation” is the noun.

In my eyes, they are illiterate hillbillies.

  1. Ugh. I hate that. Sadly, it began to be common usage even before social networking websites. When I was in high school in the 1980s, people used to ask: “Did you get an invite to Missy’s party?”

    Seems it was always Missy; she threw the best parties. But even then, “invite” used as a noun bugged me.
