verb To lose the interest and understanding of others by using words they consider "too big" or "hard" or by writing things they consider "too long". Oversmarting urbandictionary.com editors is frighteningly easy. To avoid oversmarting editors, or other groups with limited education levels and short attention spans, do not use the best word to describe your idea, but rather use the word that is closest to what you mean that is also most likely for the average 12 year old to understand. As an example, "symptoms should manifest", but if you want to be understood by an average urbandictionary editor, you better write "the things that show something is wrong with you will show up".
Rachel's submission of dingphobia was rejected by urbandictionary.com, likely because she accidentally oversmarted the editors by using words like manifest and anxiety, instead of easier words like begin and fear. She's going to resubmit with simpler words and see what happens.
The phenomenon that occurs when a powerful descriptive word becomes popular and then loses its power though repetition and incorrect use. The word awesome was once reserved for sights like the Niagara Falls and accomplishments like climbing Mt. Everest, but now it can be appropriately used to describe a really good sandwich.

A subspecies of the common douche. The racer douche is always male and generally falls in the age range of 16-24, but can be older. Like the common douche, the racer douche can be readily identified by his love of graphic t shirts and white plastic frame sun glasses. Additionally, the racer douche believes he is a driver of exceptional capability and spends the bulk of his discretionary income buying after-market kits to increase the horsepower of his Honda Civic. The racer douche sees himself as popular with women, despite rarely having a girlfriend or wife, and spending most of his free time talking to his “bros” about the sweet rims he’s saving up for. The racer douche seldom reads anything other than car magazines and unironically loves the Fast and Furious movie franchise.
Matt’s love of his Miata is getting out of hand, he just spent $1000 dollars on used rims, do you suppose he’s turning into a racer douche?
