pogsurf commented on the word twaddlologyitis
awaiting definition by Martin Wiesner

Twaddlologyitist: one who professes the 'faith' of being a twaddlologist. Not necessarily an extreme pedant, but often a more orthodox figure, who recognises when he (or she) is working on a world stage, understands the importance of rhythm and swing, whilst being able to act with subtly and flavour, 'gets' timing, and has the courage and belief to understand the deepest of poetry, whilst being under a slight bit of pressure, knows that even Chinese Whispers are subject to the usual constraints of timing. You will never see your own particular star erupting into the firmament, so why get too hot and bothered about it all? Even God is allowed a fart and a burp.
pogsurf commented on the word psycho-bigot
I coined this term today in an e-mail to ITV, an independent TV company in the UK. I wanted a word to describe someone who is bigoted towards people with mental health issues, or who seeks to stigmatize someone on the grounds of their mental health.

pogsurf commented on the word punditerati
This is a constituency worth watching on election night. The punditerati believes Jon Cruddas is safe as houses. I don't.

Even the twaddle could be studied profitably as the twaddle it is. "twaddlology".

They’re mostly good people, really; they’ve simply lost their way in the corporate labyrinth, confusing suppression, risk aversion and routine twaddlology with innovation, enlightenment and brand growth.

pogsurf commented on the word mulcted
Found a good reference to mulcted on page 346 of Hoyles' Games. It is the penalty for losing when playing "all against all".
pogsurf commented on the word never put your banana in the refrigerator
Watch out for rotten bananas under your floor-boards. I learnt this from the only ever timelord i met once.
