Disclaimer
When I want to write things, my threshold for finding a definition for something is probably 90 seconds of searching and less when I’ve asked someone verbally, because I want to record thoughts as soon as possible to make more room up there. I’ll go as far as making something up to keep the boat floating. Plus all words are made up anyway.
I will link to where the word or term is used on the site. If there is no link, there is probably something in draft.
I love learning, so if you know a better term or something close, tell me.
