  • prolixpolymath managed to add this to the database as 'onomatopoeia that best describes prolixpolymath', but in spite of that the link from his/her profile breaks; you have to use %3f. I've added this to Wordie Paradox using that method, and the result is another entry that doesn't know it's on the list: 'appears in these lists' is empty. (Edit: ah, I realised this has already been done with blah ... does that count%3f. However, the profile links of the people who added them break differently: this one produces a 500 Application Error, whereas the other produces a 'nobody is listing' page.)
