Anyone who describes a sequence of things happening in order as a "cadence". Seems to be the bullshit bingo word of 2020.

Can you give an example? I can’t wrap my head around it.

That's become a buzzword at my work and it's really getting to me.

I do love hubspot though

That's not what cadence means at all.

I've never understood why cadence has so many different and apparently unrelated definitions.  It's not like there aren't plenty of other words available :lol: I knew it as a way to describe a resolution of a chord progression in a piece of music and then about 20 years ago I became aware of it also for some reason describing how fast a cyclist's feet were going round (never confirmed that one, just took my mate's word for it that it was just a way of describing RPM).  Also used to describe the flow of language, I guess that's where the cycling bit came from although I think the point of cadence in language is that it describes something that's not regular rather than something that is.

Why do people answer questions about products on Amazon with "I don't know"?  :lol:  What's the point?

I don't know.
If you don't know, why did you answer a question about why people answer questions about products on Amazon with "I don't know " ?
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Sometimes Amazon sends you an email months after you purchase a product asking if you can answer a question about the product and, charitably, I think it's just oblivious people responding innocently to it. Or trolls.

Unsure tbh, just felt right.
