Ah, sorry, thtownse. Meant to add a comment. Thanks for asking!
See yarb's Adoption agency and mollusque's Former ghosts and check out the comments. That should give you a good idea of what this means. :-)

Why's everything have to be a syndrome, though? Can't they just be, you know, unattached words? Maybe they want to be left alone.

But c_b, why would they hang around Wordie if they didn't want to be adopted? And if we accede that ghosting words is acceptable, what would we razz uselessness about?
I don't know, mollusque. Uselessness Syndrome?
I dunno. Uselessness seems pretty asyndromatic to me. I mean, who else has his cluster of symptoms?
Eesh. Everyone's a critic.
