Because that is just annoying. Right up there with "jelly" (jealous") "breakie" (breakfast) and "outtie" (out of here).

I can see how it could be used in the graphic design field as being "body copy that you aren't expected to read or write, you just have to make it fit" (maybe this term has come up before).  In that use it still has a slightly negative or (at least) disinterested connotation.  The way I saw it this morning said something about "useful" or "pertinent" verbiage, which is kind of contradictory.

 
Yeah.

You're right about the disinterested angle. I don't have to care, I just know some words go there.

In advertising, or printing generally, the word "text" has a narrow definition: the "guts" of a book or ad copy. So "verbiage" is used to mean, essentially, *any* copy, be it headline or boilerplate. "We have the ad images and a headline, we still need the final verbiage from legal" Or "the front cover of the book is finished but we're waiting on verbiage for the dust jacket." I guess it usually means "I ain't writing that crap."
 
But yeah. Most people don't use it with the negative connotation it's traditionally had. I had a boss who always said "blurbage" and not in a self-aware that-would-be-a-cool-word-if-he-knew-what-he-were-saying sort of way.

Yeah, that's true.  I guess a loan shark or a protection outfit could benefit from notoriety.  Then, there's always Johnny's Dysentery Dining Room.

Yeah, just like they shouldn't want to be "infamous," another frequently misused word.
