And even if the examples are negative, that's not really a problem because this is an inherently negative trope.
The problem though is when people interpret "meaningless meaningful words" as "bad dialog" and use it for irrelevant
Some misuse on the main page:
- Mystery Men: Those lines are formulaic, but they're not meaningless. Each one's meaning is very clear.
- South Park: The example actually says "Admittedly, there's arguably no pretense of meaningfulness here," yet the editor thought it worth listing.
- Real Life: Us, apparently, for using "egregiously" and "aforementioned" too often. (Overuse has nothing to do with meaningless)
