I have a confliction about deconfliction

Funny how you hear a word for the first time and then it pops up everywhere.

Part of the report I’m editing is about deconfliction. This time it’s about police investigation.

That’s fine. I’m used to it. It’s jargon. Whatever.

But I’m drawing the line at ‘confliction’ (well, unless it’s part of the technical jargon used by the community I’m editing for).

Because according to Urban Dictionary:

Coined by Rachel, Christie & Gianna during Big Brother’s 2005 series in Australia; used instead of the word conflict to show that you are actually really intellect.

Oh boy.
