I can see your point of view, however it is such a useful word, that sometimes it just pops into place better than anything else.
I'm as fond of the term as anyone. To paraphrase my esteemed US Senator & former presidential candidate - "Whom among us does not like the jank?" Still, I worry that this useful term could have a very bright, short lifespan & be unusable within a few weeks because everyone's become overexposed. That would be a shame, because I suspect jank will always be with us, while the descritive word may burn out too soon.
I urge you all (especially owners of windows products & American cars) restrain yourself. Use the term sparingly. Make it last
