"Slang Terms" section has non-standard heading, non-standard format, and possible protologisms. Rod (A. Smith) 05:56, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

All sorts of dubious nonsense on this entry. None of these seem to be US terms - could somone verify if they are used elsewhere, (or is the entire entry vandalism?) --Connel MacKenzie T C 21:02, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

Verb sense:

Purposefully to fail a standardized test in a conspicuous way.

Can't find any relevant Google hits (e.g. for "chuffed the test").

"purposefully" appears to be a hypercorrection of "purposely".

Originally added here as "To fail a standarized test on purpose, specifically in the conspicuous way that scores it: A.B.A.C.A.D.A". I'm not sure I even understand that. Does it mean to make write out the answers to multiple choice questions without regard to the actual questions but just so as to make a pattern with the letters? Could this be something "made up in school one day"? Mihia (talk) 14:21, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

  • Since no evidence has been found that this sense exists, I have deleted it. Mihia (talk) 00:18, 23 January 2017 (UTC)
