Comment #1: Hesitant
Curtis W Franks (Tue Jun 9 19:37:06 2015)

I am extremely hesitant about introducing this word and I am not
particularly attached to it. I am not sure that it truly warrants a gismu.
It is not particularly culturally neutral. I am concerned with the
precedent that it might set. But, on the other hand, the word was screaming
to be made a gismu and I am not confident that this sound sequence can be
associated with anything else any time soon- even if it is not officially
adopted, I would not be too surprised to see this word being used in this
way. Also, it is hard to deny that the concept is an unimportant one in the
modern world (for historic purposes as well as contemporaneous ones). Feel
as you will about it.
