No more fake news in France!

I see the Académie Française has decreed France should use "infox" instead of the current anglicism. It does at least have a snappier feel about it than the original suggestion of "information fallacieuse".

Among recent suggestions that have failed to catch on, according to the Telegraph, have been "mobile multifonction" for smartphone, and "l’accès sans fil à internet" for Wifi.
I wonder why...

I wonder how the Wifi alliance feels about having its trade mark(s) subverted?

But there are still quite a few 'pourriels'...even on this Forum Devil [6]

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.
