I would say totally dead, but it's gasping for air on the floor

There are some people who seem to think so, but I think it will always be there.

Well I've come across lack of tact on YT. I don't think it's dead though.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 8/7/03 - 9:34:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. A lot of other things are, but tact isn't.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 8/7/03 - 10:34:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, i still use it. Irony is not lookin so good.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 8/8/03 - 1:12:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
Some people would like it to be.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 8/8/03 - 6:32:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not entirely dead.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 8/9/03 - 9:05:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
Tact is just not saying true stuff. I’ll pass.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 8/9/03 - 10:28:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
I tactfully dissagree...
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 8/9/03 - 10:32:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
Tact is saying "I disagree with you" rather than "You are a bilthering idiot." Tact is not yet dead. Although I know a few people who seem intent on killing it.

For some people it is.

From my dictionary: tact, a keen sense of what to say or do to avoid giving offence. Tact is not political-correctness, I've seen a lot of "political correct" stuff that is quite tactless. Tact is closely tied to respect and discretion.

I don't think that it's totally dead, but it's on it's way to the grave, if you ask me R. I. P.

PC is anything but tactless. In fact, it is patronising at best. I wouldn't say tact is dead, but it's sort of resorted to guerilla tactics having been pushed back into the "last ditch" following an otherwise valiant retreating maneuvre.

I would much prefer for people to use tact then to just blurt out anything that comes to the top of their noggins.
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 8/14/03 - 5:24:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
nope
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 8/14/03 - 5:44:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeppppp
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 8/16/03 - 9:54:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
fine line, that...how to be polite when it would manifestly hurt someone to be frank, but also be an honest joe. tact is a beeyooootiful thang, but, like most all things, it's intent and timing...as well as some semantic legerdemain... anyway, to answer the question, chet, it ain't dead, but it's hemorrhaging.

?????????????
18 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 8/17/03 - 4:00:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not dead, just barely breathing.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Tuesday 9/23/03 - 12:20:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
sometimes it seems to be.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 10/28/03 - 10:36:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's dead only when men attempt it...Just kidding...
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 10/28/03 - 10:40:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ask Neon.
18 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 10/28/03 - 10:59:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, you blithering idiots. It's on life-support.
