Default Compersion... am I the only one who dislikes the word?

I'm not talking about the concept, it is a great concept, it's the word itself. I hate it.

It doesn't flow off the tounge very well, it's kinda ugly and I just can't stand the look/sound of it.

The adjective frubbly and the noun frubbles are slightly better, but perhaps too informal in some cases.

I also hate that the word compersion has it's origins in a cultish commune. (when Oberon Zell calls it a cult you know it's pretty cultish... most average folk would consider CAW to be one) It makes it very hard to imagine talking to someone unfamiliar with Poly and not having them think I'm even more crazy when that comes up.
Male, married, new here, not quite poly. (but poly curious)
