Harass

Postby fmyers » Sat Dec 02, 2017 11:49 pm

Dear Alpha Agora,

I think now is the appropriate time for a discussion of the verb "harass" and the noun "harassment". It seems to be the word of the day and your wit and vast knowledge will make for most useful daily analysis. I suggest you devote a discussion to this word while it is still on everyone's mind.

Good wishes,

Frank Myers

Good suggestion. It's got my vote.

Sorry, slang for seconded, may be local. Donds! is more common usage, similar to +1.

Thanks for clearing that up. That's what I thought it was, but wasn't sure if it was intentional. It is.

Donded is a new one for me. I mostly read "seconded," but don't hear it...

"Dond" is new to me too. Wordnik has neither a definition nor a etymology but does have a couple of examples. Here's an explanatory example without a link to the explanation mentioned:

"An explanation of how the word "dond" came to be used by RR people to mean to second another reader's nomination"
