Great thread. Surprised no one added “impact” to the list, particularly when used as a verb.
Practical suggestion: compile a “Ctrl-f” list, your personal anti-lexicon; then, send it to everyone whose work you edit. If even one person begins to change habits, you’re making life easier for all of us.
