Well, duh. I am just puzzled as to why they've gotten so full of grasping greed and idiocy as to expend effort keeping people from using the word.

I mean, I am the last person who needs corporate greed explained to me, but since they already rake in billions from viewers, networks and advertisers desperately throwing bushels of money at them, tromping on small supermarket chains for having a Superbowl Sale seems... complete madness. Being so intimidating that even journalism sites steer around the word is even more so.

Not even Disney, Apple and McD's, the poster babies for trademark protection, are so ridiculous on a sweeping basis.
