taboo words

There was an honors professor at the University of Alabama that had some very singular ideas about grammar and writing. I didn't agree with all of them, but his rules still gnaw at the edge of my mind whenever I'm writing. In particular, I knew there was one word which he said we should never use, because it was almost meaningless, and was a cop-out for a more descriptive word. For a while I couldn't remember it, but when working on my Java security paper, it suddenly came to me.

"Aspects" is the taboo word.
