I think the word which most alarms me in a post title or topic sentences is nostalgic; anticipate six paragraphs on the lines of -

   - blah blah blah good old days blah blah Airfix blah blah blah second edition blah blah blah didn't count buttons/rivets blah blah good fun blah blah Featherstone Grant Young blah blah Humbrol blah blah burst circles blah blah Xeroxed copy blah blah focus on enjoyment blah blah blah
 
  - only worse.

Responders are invited to identify the word that makes their flesh creep in a post title.

"Aztecs"
Definitely.

I would add "version" as in (and I'm picking on Shermans here)  we have the M4A1A1 Sherman, but not the M4A1A1 with the easy access ladder which was fitted to the 765th battalion on a Thursday in August. or why don't we have the version of Polish uniforms that was introduced in 1923.

I've shot my bolt already, or I'd add 18xx, such that the latter two integers not exceed - 15.

When you read a post, discover it is an AAR and realise it is only one turn in a game and that other turns/posts will follow.  Tongue
