    I'm not against inventing words... On the contrary a language must evolve...

    But I'm against using a quasi meaningless word as an answer
without also providing a meaningful or coherent argument sustaining
it. Thus just to keep in the context of "suckless", if someone says:
>> Project blah is not "suckless".
    I just ignore that statement on the basis of trolling...

    But if on the contrary he says:
>> Project blah is not "suckless" because << insert at least an
intent to explain why >>.

    Then I agree to the usage of the word, and I don't count it as dogmatism.
