What is it with Ancestry.com and the word “backstory”? Which numpty in their PR department came up with that stupid idea? Not only is it not a real word but it is completely meaningless and idiotic as ALL stories, an account of incidents or events, are “backstories” in the context of ancestry.
Why do we need another stupid “buzz” word when “ancestry” suffices and has done the job for many centuries. It really is about time Americans were prevented from polluting the English language with their idiocracy which daily draws closer and closer.
