Hi Jen! Afraid I don't know the password either. I don't have it in any of my email inboxes, and I didn't receive the password requests you generated. I tried a few standard passwords I use for things like this and none of them work. Are you sure the user still exists on this site? I can't remember what the procedure was for migrating accounts over from Wordie.
Merry Christmas to you as well! I see that you are not a native English speaker, which excuses some of the perceived spamminess (machine-generated translations share much in common with machine-generated ads). And I apologize for my rudeness earlier.
Though if I may add, I believe the definition of conspiracy theory is something like "an unconfirmed claim of two or more parties conspiring in a clandestine manner." Whether the logistics of the conspiracy are plausible isn't really the issue. I have no doubt that some conspiracy theories are true, but as long as they remain unconfirmed, they still belong in that category. This is just semantics though.
Why do you put a URL in every comment, petrbuben? It's kind of, well, spammy's not the right word... actually, on second thought, spammy is the perfect word.
We like to have conversations around here without every statement including a call to action. Endlessly repeating links makes you sound like a used-car salesman, more interested in your agenda than actually Wordnikking with other people. Try commenting on some pages unrelated to 9/11 and see what it's like to use the site without peddling your conspiracy theory. You might like it.
I actually like the song quite a lot. The lyrics and tune are beautiful. It's just that one line that always sort of rubbed me the wrong way. Anyway, the real question here, is what is the difference between a Christmas carol and a Christmas song?
I don't think they exist, but Wordnik was designed for all languages. Though most of us here speak English, there are plenty of citations for words in other tongues too.
Pro tip: Don't post your email address in plaintext anywhere on the internet. Spambots scrape the web looking for them and you will receive more junk mail. Best to edit your comment and delete that part, if you ask me.
I hope this isn't too ethnocentric of me, but I have to wonder how such a counterintuitive language ever developed. The human mouth and vocal chords make certain sounds naturally, and it seems like you'd really have to go out of your way to communicate like this instead.
I can't get my mind around this one. We're talking petty theft on a scale so small you'd be hard-pressed to buy a Coke with the spoils. And yet, these guys organized? And further, law enforcement thought it worth their time to bust up the whole ring? As if it even had leaders or a traceable member list or regular meetings in a secret hideout somewhere... How does this sort of thing even happen in the real world?
"He says he’s familiar with the album but he thought we were getting on the phone to talk about incentivizing heavy users in order to optimize the network resources blah blah and I’m like, Dude, if you ever use the word incentivize around me again I swear I will get in my Gulfstream and fly to wherever you are and I will smash you in the face with a rock." -Fake Steve Jobs
Things seem to keep moving along, though there've been fewer colloquies and cupcakes lately. And, of course, it's always better when you and some of the other folks hang around for a while to play--I'm glad you're here.
I actually put my name in there on purpose... maybe I should value my anonymity higher? Although, I use this name on so many web sites, if someone really wants to know who I am it won't be hard to sleuth. Why fight it? ;-)
Dhaero is pronounced "Dhare-oh", similar to "Dare-oh" but the "D" is slightly softer.
Glad you're a fellow Dr.Paul supporter. I'm smitten by him, and am one of the "band of loyal supporters" creating tiny, colorful, handmade signs to stick around town. But it's not looking good for him. :(
Thanks for compliments on Dhaero's name. I created the word but the root is "aero". (That's meant to be a diphthong in there, however, I don't yet know how to type it as such because I'm a technology looser).
Proud to say, the names on my marquee list are "madeupical", as far as I know. If any are already in use, the band is very obscure. Confession time: my list was inspired by your "band" list. But then you probably already suspected that. =^+^=
Hi. You seem to be a large and engaging presence here; a good person to know when just joining. I like your lists very much and all else to be learned about you from your exchanges with other members. I adore words but am somewhat intimidated by the vast vocabularies of folks like yourself. My current mission here is to find a parsifal word to name my new son. His brothers are Odyssey and Meridian. Any ideas?
Hey Jen! (Yikes, now there's two Jens around here *tries not to get confused*)
So there's really no way to send private messages on Wordie yet, but yeah, a note on a profile is cool. Thanks for the kind words! I also enjoy rummaging through your letter-lists and finding nuggets of randomness. :-D
Haha, that's hilarious! It's funny, I noticed that immediately after I finished the last line, the site went "down for maintenance" so I figured you were probably doing something like that. :-)
Actually I was hoping you might, because while I love leaving that little rabbit trail as an easter egg for future generations to discover, I felt bad about cluttering things up with it all today. So, nice compromise. :-)
