A hopeless plea for sanity

Please, please, please, FOR GOD’S SAKE PLEASE stop using the “word” “incentivize.” It’s a warped and befouled placenta of language. Suggested alternatives:
Encourage
Support
Promote
Subsidize
ANYTHING FOR FUCKS SAKE.

    I’ve also heard “incent”, which might be even uglier.

    In the spirit of “sticklerness,” FUCKS SAKE should read the proper possessive FUCK’S SAKE.

    Also, weird use of “placenta”.
