  • Great coinage, c_b! Does this apply mainly to reesetee, or also to those gaining rapidly, like bilby?

  • I think it applies to any of us who eye someone else's wordometer with lust or malice in our hearts.

    It isn't the same as coveting, though. That's with an intention to steal--and you can't steal on Wordie because there's that nifty "add to your words" link that absolves us of all notions of stealing.

    Though I guess one can coin a term or phrase without giving credit to the person who thought of it first, but... that's kind of nitpicky.

    Then again, lust and malice are nothing if not nitpicky...

  • Glad to hear it applies to all. Otherwise I'd really have to watch my back around here. ;-)
