"C'est abusé" or "c'est abuser".

In the expression "C'est abuser!", we very often see the past participle "abusé" replacing the infinitive "abuser". Yes, of course, if the expression is used to refer to a situation where you feel you've been had, you wouldn't say you've been had, would you?

Is it abusive or is it abusive? Avoid abusive language!

To avoid making a mistake, simply replace abuser with an expression that makes it easier to understand the situation you are in: if it's abusive to ask for 20 euros to go to the cinema, is to take people for fools than to think they're going to go.

Tip: replace abuser with a verb from the 2nd or 3rd group. It's obvious that nobody will think of using the past participle with finir or mentir.

It would be a lie to say otherwise...

So.., we never write 20 for a cinema ticket, it's abused. " Because we never write :

"20 for a cinema ticket is taking people for idiots". Understand? And if you don't UNDERSTAND, I can't DO anything for you!

Is it too much?

As you can see, to write such a thing is an abuse!
