This is especially for you, ev. A site in beta that tries to combine everything, including donations of new words and their definitions.

http://www.wordnik.com

Can any pedantic tw*ts join this site???

Is there also a site somewhere called <<www.peacenik.com>> --because I'd like to join it if there is.

...signed,
"Yours truly For All British Troops Out Of Afghanistan Tout-De-Suite".

I'd say that the site is rather non-pedantic in its approach, so if you are a hard-line pedantic type, you wouldn't enjoy it.

It is a site in beta, so when I signed up a couple months ago I had to wait several days for my "approval." That may have changed now.

If there were a site called peacenik.com, Pete, I'm sure you would have found it if you were truly interested.

Thanks - that could come in handy.

artofcp:yeah,I surprised myself just by putting down <<www.peacenik.com>> as a piece of guesswork and it seems there IS a website with that appellation after all.Guess what,it's for peaceniks!! It gives links to lots of other useful "peacenik" sites as well.
There is also <<www.stopwar.org.uk>>, which is the official website of Stop The War Coalition UK.

That's NUMBERWANG!!!

The quote at the top of that site is interesting, bIG. I'm familiar with moveon.org and truemajority.org.

Kazzzz, you must submit the definition for numberwang!

Oh my aching eyes! And head! I should have had another cup of coffee before watching that! I don't get it. I'm not sure I want to though!!!

artofcp: you need to go have a short lie-down to ease your pain.
Numberwang is supposed to be a parody of a typical gameshow but the trouble is I don't think that Mitchell and Webb are quite as funny as they think they are,in fact I think they are just a pair of tossers.
