Before expressing your problem(s) with these words please go and do some reading until you understand a tiny bit when, how and why people actually use them. I'm not asking you to agree - just to have a vague idea of what you are talking about.

In general: no. In rare cases like this PyCon story: yes, it can be quite ridiculous sometimes.
