If you're faced with two options and one of them is more worthy of consideration, as in it takes less of your time, making the other option more "unworthy of consideration". It has a clear disadvantage that needs to be highlighted with a "strong" adjective.

"unconsiderworthy" was the word I thought would fit but it seems it's not a word. (although atleast one other person has used it)

edit: agreeing with the comments, changed the phrasing.

    I've never heard nor can I find "considerworthy", therefore it's antonym makes no sense. There is "considerable". Did you look in a dictionary? I'd start with consider(able). Good luck. – anongoodnurse Jun 24 '14 at 9:30
  • @medica I found several uses, including contemporary governmental. An example of early use: "I am compelled to offer these remarks in answer to the inquiry of your correspondent G. W. D., which, if you considerworthy a place in your Magazine, their insertion will oblige, Sir, Combustion." -Mechanics magazine. v. 2 (1824) – Third News Jun 25 '14 at 8:13
  • @ThirdNews - This. The above is an error wherein the space between consider and worthy* is missing. consider is the verb in the phrase "if you consider worthy of a place..." (1824). Your searches can turn up any error. That doesn't make it a word. Just like "thisisn't" a word. – anongoodnurse Jun 25 '14 at 15:41
  • @medica, I always check for a difference between the OCR, and the text scan; your comment is inaccurate – Third News Jun 25 '14 at 16:29

    @ThirdNews Just because the OCR accurately transcribes text doesn't mean the source text isn't also missing a space. – Mr. Shiny and New 安宇 Jun 25 '14 at 19:43

Why not simply worthless

Having no real value or use

as in

One proposal was worthy of consideration, but the other was worthless.

Alternatives might be

  • pointless
  • inconsequential
  • unproductive
  • unsuitable
  • inutile

Consider inconsiderable.

not worthy of consideration; insignificant


negligible may be an alternative:

Not significant or important enough to be worth considering; trifling.

  • negligible doesn't imply the unworthiness enough. Option 2 is not just not important, but it has a disadvantage that needs to be highlighted with a "strong" adjective. – laggingreflex Jun 24 '14 at 10:39
  • Ok, I suggest you rephrase your question to make clear what you are looking for so other users may help too. – user66974 Jun 24 '14 at 10:42
  • Do 'unacceptable' or inadmissible' convey the meaning you are looking for? – user66974 Jun 24 '14 at 10:54

Indign undeserving; unworthy disgraceful

    This word is archaic and obsolete (or poetic). At least you should list that along with your definition. – anongoodnurse Jun 25 '14 at 15:34
