But yeah, I suppose it is true, too many words can lead to the development of all sorts of isms. Getting too caught up in all those isms can lead one to become an ist. The problem with being an ist is that ists tend to get stuck in their isms, and have a hard time getting back out. Better to avoid getting hypnotized by those isms.

The Tao that can be ismed is not the true Tao. The sage is not an ist.
really great and wonderful ~ spot on
