RE>Inventing words unnecessarily and... 6/6/96

Sometimes, when one doesn't know the right word, one makes up a word that
sounds right (to the person making it up). I don't know if that's honorable
or not, but it does dishonor to the intelligability of the things people are
trying to say.

>>Good point -- I forget how so much of this on the Internet depends on the
honorability of its users rather than the systems that make up the net.<<

"honorability"?
Sorry, folks. I couldn't let this one slip by. Does this mean we have
the ability to have honor, or we have the ability to practise honourable
behaviour? I whole heartedly agree that we are dependant upon the honour of
all other Internet users, as they are dependant upon ours, but I don't think
I know what honorability means.
