    Is it just me, or do you instantly switch off lose all interest as soon as the word "Guru" is mentioned?

    It is probably the most abused word in "IM"

    Second most. #1 is "TAKE ACTION!", repeated in every single damn thread/conversation by mindless monkeys.

    Completely agree.

    Also, if you call yourself a GURU you are just setting yourself up for a fall.

    Just reminded me that...

    ...how many of you remember the words as Gosu or Hasu that were associated with Korean-dominated games like WIII or SC? :D

    You gotta love when you see someone writes paypal/youtube/facebook/pinterest/seo/fiverr/myspace guru right next to his jr.vip's avatar. So WF-ish...

    Ya'll are just hatin' cuz you don't have what it takes to be number one Guru in IM.

    Coincidentally the tools you need to be number two Guru are just a few 500 dollar ebooks away.

    "over deliver" is overused more than "guru".
    apparently giving someone actual value for their money is "over delivering."
