It sounds negative but actually means to approve something.

Stupid!

To overlook something. Sounds about right to me.

I hate the word Naysayer. Makes me want to start punching people in the face. :mad:

That might be because of the root word "con" which is like Latin or something for "bad."

more along the lines of "with".

I understand. It sounds too similar to "condemn", which means the exact opposite. It gets confusing sometimes.

Words starting with "con" are all negative (ex. condom)

Good thing this and naysayer haven't been said by people who don't wear capes and carry wooden swords in the past 300 years.

I'm pretty sure "mal" is bad. Con is still negative, though. It's more like "not"


Conartist? No way! :p

That's two words.

No, he condones the use of the word condemn.

I generally condone, but have moments of condemning. I'm a condoning condemner.

I usually condemn, but I condone this thread

This is far from conventional, but I must confess that I would normally condemn this thread, however it is conceivable that my conscience would conflict with my conclusion, causing me much concern. What a conceited concept. Grant me time to confer with my confidants and I'm sure I will construct a less controversial conversation and therefore consolidate said conflict.

Yes, I said conflict twice. I ran out of enthusiasm. So, arrest me. Constable!

Condoms are pure evil, and therefore also negative. They give people the ability to make terrible sins.

If you don't believe me, just ask the pope...

I don't think the conditions are right, it would just sound condescending and contrived, as opposed to convincing as a connoisseur completely connected to the intricate convictions of the mind of a convict constantly controlled, but not conned, by the conniving constructions that are the contemplations of con-artists. Confident I am in the convincing manner this was conveyed to me by a genuine raconteur.

I'm content with your contribution, although a little confused with your confrontational conference.

Stop being so damn conservative, guys. Be a little conscious about this stuff. I'm no conquistador, but I'm not fully content with the content in this concuction of cons.

I heard Congo's nice this time of year.

wheelchairman

I was just about to say that I was pleased no one contested the lack of content or context in my writing. Quite the contrary,

but then you went ahead and used the word content. You malcontent.

Andy

What can I say; I like to take control of a conversation.

Good work. I'd say that was worthy of a shower of confetti, thrown in context of the thread.

I can't quite put my finger on it, but this post seems awfully contrived for some reason.

The constantly convoluted Condileeza Rice concisely condoned consensual, conditional sex with a constapated, confabulatory Congolese convict and conissoure of condoms, but controversially and contradictorally continues to constantly condemn contriving to con confused congressmen out of condensed condements for their continental breakfast, concluded the condescending and conspicuously concussed concrete contractor/conniving consultant while conciously contemplating conviniently conforming to or constructively confronting Connecticut's constitutional Conifer and Condor conservation conventions at the conceited, concerned constaple's concealed contaminated condo.

You gotta add "conservative" in front of Condi Rice. Only then will it be a true work of art.

you know what word i hate? 'pregnant'. just on a side note. can't stand the word. never have been able to.

my sister hates the word 'dollop', so my mom and i make sure to use it as often as possible when deemed appropriate for the conversation.

condone is like condom, lolz.

seriously, the word does kind of make me think of.. that other word. every time. probably because "condom" in Dutch is pronounced "condome". which so often reminds me of Steven Shaw. I know it's lame, I can't help it, it gives me the giggles. I'm so childish.:(

it's such a shame in Dutch there's no such word like "condone". *sigh*
