Those fond of using bureaucratic terms. (Also Jargonaut.)

To wit:
Our daily discourse is not only weighed down by the accumulated detritus of generations of recondite governmentese, it is also consonantly plagued by acronymous new jargon from MNREGA to JNNURM, CVC to CAG.

We would be one step closer to the universal goal of transparent governance once these jargon-auts are speedily banished. A brave new word order should not be a distant dream for plainspeaking folks.

We would also be closer to transparent government if people used simpler vocabulary. Big words make people feel smarter, but it just serves to hide meaning.
