Term in Britain; a similar article on WP gets 100 readers per day. Unique term. Fresh material (no porting).--Thomas Wright Sulcer 05:38, 5 March 2010 (UTC)

OK, but can it ever be more than a dictionary entry and a few examples of people using the word, just as they use lots of other words every day? I'm not sure this is maintainable unless there is something interesting about the word that stands out compare to the usage, history etc. of other words. John Stephenson 16:43, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Indeed, I never saw the point of it. And the WP version is very similar. Ro Thorpe 16:56, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
