Perhaps this page, along with quite a lot of really random-seeming words that would better belong in "Urban Dictionary" or the like should be considered for deletion. A lot of people use Wiktionary for learning the english language, and flooding it with terms that only a miniscule handful of people potentially ever use hampers that greatly. I see no benefit to this page here, as the term is definately not in use in common parlance, or even uncommon parlance. It is especially not helpful when it is so close to an another term. 87.92.152.36 22:23, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

Perhaps you should write your own dictionary, with only words you have personally approved of. DTLHS (talk) 22:23, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
We can gloss words as "rare", "slang", "neologism", etc. Perhaps this needs one or more of those (not outright deletion!). Equinox 17:53, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
If we can't find citations from before 2014, "neologism" could be added. IMO it's not "slang" because academic discussions use it. It doesn't seem as rare as the things we normally label "rare" (we should possibly try to come up with criteria for when to label something as rare...), especially relative to how much or little the topic itself is discussed / other words for the concept are used. - -sche (discuss) 22:03, 8 August 2018 (UTC)
