Exactly.

Though, admittedly, I've *almost* become immune to it, as everyone around me uses the term to describe the online sessions I do. I have to tune it out or hate my job more than I already do. (I'm in one right now.... Shussh)

I'll spare you the neologism that applies to the website of the Universal Life Church.

Gnaw off your own leg to escape. It's the only sensible choice.

Re: Huh?

It's a hideous portmanteau neologism for "web seminar" which is, as you can see by the other comments, widely reviled...

My boss once asked me to print out a webinar [shudder] for him.

The best part? It hadn't even taken place yet.
