KINDOF.COM seeks to represent the opposite of "kind of," as when people say, "I'm kind of interested in that." Or, "I'm kind of upset about that." Why, these days, can we not be interested or upset or... without diluting it all the time with those two words? Start listening to what people say and you will hear "kind of" inserted so often and in such the wrong places that, once your ear is tuned to it, you will be stunned by its frequency. Send me some good examples to post!
