I don't think "gap-lappers" should count toward citing "gaplapper". --Dan Polansky (talk) 16:35, 18 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This is hilarious: we have two citations of "gap-lappers", two of "gaplappers", and one of "gap lappers". Can anyone find another citation of one of the first two spellings, or two more citations of the last spelling? I checked Google Books, Google Groups, Google Scholar and Issuu. - -sche (discuss) 07:08, 30 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Neatly enough, the spelling which started with the fewest citations is now the one that seems to be attested (gap lapper; see the citations page) thanks to Cloudcuckoolander's excellence at finding citations. - -sche (discuss) 23:00, 23 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
