The use of the word 'anyways' has become a clear sign of a pasta that needs extensive editing/proofreading, in my humble opinion. It's so improper and slang-y, and its usually in pair with horrendous grammar. I think I used the word 'anyways' when I was around 12 or 13, and now, a decade later, it makes me cringe. I wish it would be freakin' banned.
