I recall when I first read the word "compersion," I thought it was a typo. I thought it was supposed to be either compassion or comparison, and that whoever wrote it was stupid. Then I really disliked it when I found out it was actually a poly-specific made-up word. I tried to think of how to make an adjustment to it somehow, to be more palatable, but couldn't come up with anything.

I have since grown to like it, and I really don't know why.

As for frubbles and frubbly, I refuse to acknowledge them. If anyone uses them, I think they are being moronic and childish, and my respect for them goes down a few notches. What, are we all living in a Bambi cartoon? They are absolutely a million-billion times worse than compersion!
