I know I'm getting old when the language no longer seems yo mean what it used to. For example - "bullying" now seems to mean saying insulting or unkind things(based on a radio ad by "stopbullying.gov"). When I was a kid it meant physical intimidation by someone bigger than you, or even actual assault. It was stopped by having a bigger friend bully the bullier or learning how to fight and beating the crap out of the asshole yourself :).
But then its the government and bureaucrats are used to manipulating language in creative ways.
