The word "seemingly".

Don't tell me that it "seemingly appealed to everyone."

Did it or did it not? Don't play these useless games. Worst word ever.

I'll just post this here because I was bored.

Quote:
The audience seemingly agreed with him, even those he counted among his enemies. That he thought in words like seemingly, however, led him to believe his instincts had picked up on an undercurrent that went deeper than the mere surface of a clap; that also noticed the subtle reluctance, the interweaving of eagerness and dismissiveness at once; that relied more on a sense beyond this world than acute hearing or observation.

No way about it, this seeming approval told him, things would get hot before long.

He fingered his wand holster and smiled into the clapping mass. Let them try.

a) boredome; b) the underlying point that it's all about how, not about what, and that applies to seemingly as well.

Though I agree that this is the kind of adverb that has to be used even more sparingly than other adverbs, because it tends to weaken the sentence if it's not used well.
