    I've grown to hate the term "mastermind" groups.

    It's such a self-indulgent title and I can't think of a single sales page that didn't offer the opportunity to be "one of the few select chosen individuals" to be given the honor of joining one.

    a little piece of me died the day I heard a marketing person use "task force" as a verb:

    "Jerry, I'd like for us to task force that idea into a tangible."

    I don't know if this qualifies, but prices that end in 7.
    $47,$97,etc.
    I automatically start to lower my expectations of any product with the '7' in the price.
