STOP IT!!!!

I personally have noticed an increase lately in the idiotic, ridiculous, moronic and tautological "I personally" phrase to start statements on this site. It is reaching epidepic proportions.

Not as bad as "he's" "instead" of "his", "then" instead of "than" or "suppose" instead of "supposed", but it's getting up there.

I personally think that you personally will find that if you personally just say "I" instead of "I personally" it will be well understood that you personally mean yourself and noone else.

Another words, you don't like people being redundant redundant?

I, personally (as opposed to the "I" sitting across the room from me), would have to agree with you.  Although, this kind of stuff doesn't bother me that much here, more so in emails and memos at work.

Personally, I think you might have a good point, in my opinion. Just sayin'

Wait until it gets to epidermic proportions ... then we'll need some aloe vera.

I personally don't think that I ever ever use that phrase, nor do I remember seeing it all that much. That said, now that you've pointed it out it's going to start popping up everywhere. :-(

I was talking about this to a mate the other week, it's like deja vu all over again.

The amount this happens is mind boggling.

Why don't you go and swallow two, consecutively, one after the other.

Here's a lovely example from yesterday:

I love my Cobra equipment, but I did personally pick up a Tour Edge TSG

Obviously that's so you don't misunderstand and think he had his butler pick it up for him.

I personally, think Shorty is a grumpy old fart.

I personally, think this thread is a waste of everyone's time. Can I get my 30 seconds back?

There.

I just adjusted the space-time continuum so you have your 30 seconds back. Only problem is you now live in a parallel universe and work as a WalMart greeter and your face and butt have been swapped.

Tell us the whole story. There must be a downside.
