    Default Orgah Newspeak Dictionary

    Statistics and global warming have forced us to save words. This thread is purposewise to that matter.
    Just as an intelectual challange for the Backroom. A Backroom political game if you like it.
    Challange:help build a common Newspeak dictionary for use in Backroom threads.
    Prize: for anyone who participates

    Thread is plusbackroomwise. Duckspeak you're think. And no prolefeedstuff, please!
    I'll just speakwrite my first words then.All doubleplusgoodstuff shall be posted into the opening reply.

    Reverting to OldSpeak:
    Definitions and terms can be improved/rectified.


    writepol = moderators
    joywrite = trolling
    textual-assault=flaming
    joywriter = troll
    cameldung = ********,nonsense

    a la moed = translation from french "served with Texas" 1) a thread in which the greatness of Texas or Texans is mentioned; 2) a ridiculously over-inflated opinion of one's self or rightness of one's argument.
    yebut = pronounced yeah-but. The tendency of someone to find the negative and controversial (real or imagined) in even the most positive of discussions. The result is usually thread closure and examples of most, if not all, the joycamp words from the Orgah Newspeak Dictionary.
    OPummm = noun, pronounced oh-pee-um. A thread with a title that tells you nothing about the topic.
    Voice of Gah!d = an argument so absurd, the poster must be listening to a voice in his head, and it ain't the voice of logic or reason.

    Texicitry - the tendency to always mention a certain state in one's post with utter disregard to the relevance of it to the topic being discussed.
    Galloticitry - the ability to always mention a certain country in one's post and somehow make it seem relevant to the topic being discussed.
    naughtigain = pronounced naw-ti-gan. 1) A noun referring to any recurring discussion or patron interaction that results in heated debate and will never yield a satisfactory result for either side. 2) A noun referring to any recurring discussion or patron interaction that results in heated debate and will never yield a satisfactory result for either side. 3) A noun referring to any recurring discussion or patron interaction that results in heated debate and will never yield a satisfactory result for either side.
    Gregspeak - use of punnery
    doublewrite - the paradoxal ability of making inconsistent posts, forgetting and remembering differing parts of it as the situation demands without being aware of it (I'd call this doublepost, but that's already a word in oldspeak)

    Textual assault = flaming

    Balloon-worthy = an award or praise with or without value (depending upon intent)

    Cronos' offer of a balloon for participation is an example of balloon-worthy with value. His intent is as a reward for participation. It could also be used as sarcasm "That's ridiculous. Your logic is balloon-worthy." where =

    Do I get a balloon?

    The Backroom already has an advanced newspeak dictionary.

    The 10th Edition will comprise of just the word Bollox and a list of member's names. This will allow any subject to be discussed in the Backroom's finest traditions.

    For example:

    Thread 1

    Fragony
    Bollox
    Fragony
    Bollox
    Fragony
    Bollox
    Thread 2

    Crazed Rabbit
    Bollox
    Crazed Rabbit
    Bollox
    Crazed Rabbit
    Bollox
    Is there anyone here who doesn't know exactly what those threads are discussing?

    Discussions are often initiated 1) by a new Backroom patron who thinks it is a good topic that has never been discussed before; or 2) the beginning of any major sports event. The patron interaction naughtigains are prompted by anything from the color of the sky to the patron's next breath.

    See BG's and Marshal's posts for examples of both. The term is a mashup of "not again" and "naught to gain".

    Gunbortions is a good refinement. I should add that to be a proper gunbortion, the participants must either provide nothing to back up their claim or use sources so slanted in favour of their point that even they have to hold their nose whilst referencing it.

    So that its subjects will view it with admiration, as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the road,
    but also with fear, for whom among them has the strength to contend with such a paragon of avian virtue? In such a manner is the princely
    chicken's dominion maintained. ~Machiavelli

    1) Texas is so great that it is only owing to the very greatness of its magnanimity that it allows non-Texas subjects to be discussed. Be thankful, mortal.

    2) Frexans ARE always right. Hence there can be no over-inflation of opinion. And hence, Frexan rightousness is still only a sign of humility, a sign that they deem their audience worthy of a reply.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.
