a favorite of the mainstream media, referring to blogs. But 'turgid' is a conversational emergency brake.

No priority or value is assigned here--there is no question pudenda is more pleasing than fistula. And let's not even consider catamenia. I'm just trying to elevate the general discourse, across the board.

should I move them all over? Is this s benefit for anyone? I've seen a lot of conversation about phobias...

...should solve the group list suggestion. Not that I know how to build something like that...
Also, is there a way to eliminate users' default word lists from the home page? If I sign up, add one word and disappear I don't think my lame default list should push another user's lovingly created list off the home page. Just a thought.

I know one person who uses the word munge. He uses it constantly, and to describe the crappy effort he's going to make at his job. So, the fact I despise this person doesn't help the word's chances with me.
New list idea: otherwise good words, ruined by despicable human beings

Someone just posted a very useful list of alternatives for the word "information". In a single sitting, I may have to use 5-6 of these synonyms. This list is a very helpful shortcut.
If your point is to copy words out of the dictionary to get to the top of the "Most Words" list, have fun. But if you like free association, etymology, linguistic obscurities, etc., you'll find the purpose--despite the clutter.

...one night in Poodiac
200 users in 2 days!?! Apparently there are a lot of compulsive, list-making word geeks out there. Or, rather, in here.

by user? by active lists? Love to flip through some of the stuff that was on the home page yesterday--you know, before membership ABSOLUTELY EXPLODED.

One of the politest words for an impolite action. I think I feel a new list coming on...

I'm finishing my first semester of Library School, and I'm just *sick* of "information".
