I dislike "but", and I'll tell you why.

The term|word "but" in the English language is strange; sometimes it is a modifier, other times it is only a conjunction [like a word semi-colon]. I suspect that "but" creates a lot of confusion and frequently muddles or side-tracks conversation. We need less "but". I'm taking a late new-years resolution to find other ways of more accurately expressing "but"-ness.
