One more terrible word – Shoposphere

Seems like everybody’s busy creating terrible sounding new words – the one I just ran into is Shoposphere, mentioned by SEW’s Chris Sherman in this post about Yahoo expanding its shopping search. I am not sure if this is the first mention of the word, and feel reluctant to really research this. Anyway, this is one more word along with splogs and splogosphere that I don’t like at all – it just sounds too unnatural.

An update: it appears that Yahoo itself came up with the word! – Ugh….
