"any public discussion attracts some amount of “detractor performants” (I really am trying to reduce the use of the term “troll”) who have more time to write and send (often lengthy/crazy) email/proposals/bugs than those of us who actually spend most of our day *building* the web." -- Coined by Tantek in January 2010.
A zindernuff is "something completely ridiculous that you believe as a kid. I'm not talking about stuff like Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, where there's a conspiracy of adults lying to children in order to trick them into believing that nonsense. I'm talking about theories that a child develops on his own based on his limited understanding of the world. For example, when I was young I truly believed that giraffes' horns were actually antennae that they used to communicate, using radio or ESP or some sort of mystical giraffe power."
A system of government in which "elected representatives would formally define and manage an after-the-fact measurement of national welfare, while market speculators would say which policies they expect to raise national welfare."
A retreat for times of ill humour. This term has largely become obsolete, which is strange, given that so many people seem to have a place to go when they are in a bad mood - a place to be alone and think. It's similar in meaning to the Latin-derived sanctum sanctorum, with the added connotation that the individual in question is going to the place to be alone while upset.
