Diatribe

Diatribe

<deye-ah-treyeb>

attack; tirade; denounce;

a strong and aggressive verbal attack against someone.

His angry diatribe was filled with bad and nasty words.

Memory trick: Di reminds of two. Tribe reminds of tribe or group.
Two tribes argue with each other.

Used at work:
I agree with your diatribe. Your words convince me we should do a better design for the product.
