Default The word "moderation" pertaining to one's diet.

Do you think a person actually knows what a healthy diet is when they say, "just eat everything in moderation"?

It might mean that you can eat every junk-food item imaginable as long as you don't have it twice in one day.

Default Everything in moderation

Everything in moderation, pertaining to life in general.

So if you're cheating on your spouse, it's okay as long as it's done moderately. If you get caught cheating, just say, "I only cheated four times this year. What's the big deal?

A moderate bank robber might say, "I only robbed two banks last year and one this year."

It's more descriptive and it's colloquial use defines an exact area.
It tells you more than simply using the word neighborhood which doesn't tell you very much.
A "neighborhood" could be anywhere.
It certainly does tell me more....

I thought I knew everything ; I'm glad I know now what those symbols meant - A NEW TOOL TO USE!!

"Who peed in your cheerios?"

When I hear news reporters explaining to us "what went down."

"He hit him upside his head."

And above all…..'sucks.'

Let's quietly refuse in our own small ways to go along with either the 'dumbing down' or 'vulgarization' of America. Don't smile nervously at those who do it, please. Isolate them little by little until may be they will talk in the proper mother tongue.

I was in the play "Daddy's Dying, Who's Got the Will?" and the phrase was "I done peed in my chili." Close, right?

This could be a problem for me -- I've forgotten too much of my German to speak it properly.

I gather that you are objecting to the term moderation because you feel it needs to be quantified?
Since we seniors are mature and intelligent people, I think we understand that the term "moderation" means the avoidance of extremes.
I doubt any of us feel that it would be moderate behavior to eat "every junk food item imaginable" on a daily basis.
