Indiscriminate verb use, even little ones like 'use' and 'do',
is merely another way to make your writing Important. You may
adopt these keys to show the Importance of your writing:

o as discussed here earlier, Capitialize it
o utilize words too big for the context
o creation of noun string nominalizations is good even if your verb is weak
o insert commas, where you want people to pay attention

Any additions welcome.
