  1. Not every scandalous occurrence needs to end with “gate”.

    The original Watergate scandal was called that because that was the name of the place where the break in took place. “Whitewatergate” was an interesting play on words but none of the other thisgate, thatgate, ratgate, mousegate, etc. usages have been anything but lazy writers unable to think of a good description.

    Lose the xxxxgate.
