@Wrzlprmft I didn't see your message in chat until just now. I go through new tags every now and then and do the obvious synonyms, so I did marking yesterday and I just did morale for you.
I just came to chat to drop this in here: mcsweeneys.net/articles/end-of-semester-bingo

Hi guys
 
@D.Hutchinson @D.Hutchinson This is a late response, but the answer is no. Academia.SE is pretty much a concentrated clearing house of the worst of academia, but it's not nearly that bad.
