I hate this phrase. It’s annoying and overused and mostly over misused. People think it is poignant when it is not. It’s just stupid.
I may run for POTUS on the platform banning this phrase from the English language! (well, maybe not)
Regardless (BTW: There is no ‘irregardless’ in the English language, don’t use it), it is banned from my own writings. Neither I nor anyone who writes/works with me will be allowed to use it.
