I agree. It's not a well-turned word.

The adjective frubbly and the noun frubbles are slightly better, but perhaps too informal in some cases.
Those two are just dumb as fuck. Whomever came up with those needs swatted with a rolled up newspaper.

(when Oberon Zell calls it a cult you know it's pretty cultish... most average folk would consider CAW to be one)
I'd have to say that anybody who thinks the Church of All Worlds is a cult has no clue what a cult is--thinking something is a cult simply because one has no clue what it is smacks of gross bigotry.

So, yeah, I'd rather a different word jump up to convey the meaning.
When speaking of various forms of ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
