new rule: "disgruntled" is unavailable for use

When I am Dictator of the Universe, I'm imposing a moratorium on use of the word "disgruntled". If you want to imply "this person's criticisms are petty, vindictive, and personally-motivated", you can jolly well come out and say so openly.

(Prompted by the White House spokesmouth's remarks about Scott McClellan's book and by several HR newsletters I've read over the past few days. Blech.)
