Used to be a regular but now I'm in ... er, what's the word? Hibernation? 
No, more monkish .... on a retreat?

Its (okay, be fair was ;-) a great site - there's lots of good back ground 
and they answer question well. Lots and lots of smart folks. Yes, a few 
cranky folks but if you get flamed for asking a bad/FAQ question, if you 
can ignore the fierceness of the heat and take heed of the fact that you 
probably could've done a better job at asking, you'll learn a lot.  Not a 
place for thin-skinned folks but then that could be said about this whole 
"Internet" thingey.

Occasionally, we need words we have long since abandoned or that have 
abandoned us. We may be facing
 a period in our history now when we need to retrieve "cacoepy" from our 
lexical attic. "Cacoepy" is not to be 
confused with cacology "bad choice of words." The antonym of "cacoepy" is 
orthoepy "the correct pronunciation of words."
 "Cacoepistic" is the adjective form of today's word and a person who 
often mispronounces words is a "cacoepist."
