I don't quite know how to say this without offending someone (and that someone would be qroqqa). See, while I agree with an earlier comment that bilby made, that the contributions of qroqqa and rolig are of such high calibre they bring a welcome linguistic gravitas to the site, one of Wordie's other virtues that I treasure is the sheer exuberance and enthusiasm for words and language that other, less linguistically well-informed members (which would be the great majority of the unwashed rest of us) bring to the party.
So it would be a great pity if "corrections", however well-justified, were to have the effect of stifling that exuberance, particularly in new members who are just learning to navigate the site. And believe me, the irony of my writing that is not lost on me, because - Lord knows - I am in no position to throw stones, given my propensity to tag words as misspelled. But maybe there is a middle ground, where newbies are given some extra leeway.
Because we sure don't want to risk losing the contributions of a Zizoo, or a Looseygoosey, dontchathink?
Which reminds me of that conversation about making Wordie jokes in real life and nobody gets them... I've used "madeupical" seriously in real life and gotten the strangest comments, and I say "What?!" like they're stupid, before I realize, "Oh. They're not on Wordie."
I know I made it up. >.> It's on my "words I made up" list (Very appropriately name "Zizoo's words"). Although I'm probably gonna go through now on all the others and edit my first comment to include that I made it up. And I'm just making them up out of boredom and a vague understanding of base words derived from knowledge of English rather than directly of Latin, so lemme know when I'm screwing up the form....
