mollusque commented on the word wordie orphan syndrome
I dunno. Uselessness seems pretty asyndromatic to me. I mean, who else has his cluster of symptoms?

I don't know, mollusque. Uselessness Syndrome?
But c_b, why would they hang around Wordie if they didn't want to be adopted? And if we accede that ghosting words is acceptable, what would we razz uselessness about?
Why's everything have to be a syndrome, though? Can't they just be, you know, unattached words? Maybe they want to be left alone.
Ah, sorry, thtownse. Meant to add a comment. Thanks for asking!See yarb's Adoption agency and mollusque's Former ghosts and check out the comments. That should give you a good idea of what this means. :-)
