Here's Another for M-W

The 11th Edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary is hot off the presses. The list of words (and phrases) added in this edition includes brain freeze, bikini wax, and chick flick. Based on my experiences while working on a freelance project this afternoon, I would like to submit the following for edition #12:

Word rage (wurd rAj) n. intense frustration and thoughts of violence against technological devices arising from Microsoft Word's repeated thwarting of one's attempt to perform simple formatting tasks. [Suzanne was overcome with Word rage when the program repeatedly rejected her attempts at accurate paginating.]
