In one post to our food blog at the Dallas Observer, I once made the mistake of using the word "foodie." I didn't give it a second thought, but our restaurant critic made sure the word never made it online -- he can't stand how popular the word has become.

Anyway, I'm curious how other people feel about the word and its rise to popularity.
