"Blargument." You heard it here first!

I humbly submit a new word and send it forth into the blogosphere: "blargument." Definition? An argument on a blog, especially of the substantive type rather than mere name-calling. Does an argument sparked by trolling qualify? Yes.

Update: as Emily Litella would say, "Never mind."

Yo, you should link to our blargument as an example.

Very nice! I'll pass it along, with acknowlegement of course.

But if I were you, I'd ditch the troll. They get off on themselves without a hat-tip from someone else. Blargument would be useful for something that's more intense than comments or discussion, but is by people who actually want to be engaged, not just get up other folks' noses.

Armchair Capitalists: July 2005
I wrote a while back about a blargument (Did I just coin a new phrase? Sadly,
Google says no.) between Brad DeLong and Will Wilkinson. ...

Heh, google says no.
