  • It seems to me that adding a word to a list should not remove the word from one's main list. As it is now, "chrisjones's Words" is inaccurate, since it appears to store only the leftovers.

    Also, if lists behaved more like labels, words could belong to multiple lists, which would be capital.

    My apologies if this has been brought up before.

    Keep up the good work, and watch your back -- my employer is going to kill you.

  • v. tran. - to hold in high esteem (esp. when inappropriately)

    I prefer the reflexive construction.

    EG:

    "There once was a man so beknighted
    that he never knew when he’d been slighted
    so he went to a party
    and ate just as hearty
    as if he’d been really invited"
