So, what's about this 'compatable' word I keep reading in geek forums, and only in geek forums? Is its proximity to 'computable'? Some slang term neither I nor Urban Dictionary are aware of? Are you guys playing a practical joke on me and the rest of non-native english speakers? Pseudo-technical jargon? Because I have to admit that it almost worked, forcing me to look it up several times to convince myself that, indeed, this word is like totally made up.
don't you know about "compatability"? it's when something is compatible, but could do better (politely speaking)
Yeah, that unnecessary outburst of disgust must have wasted a good few minutes of your day. Isn't it sad how those minutes just never grow back again?
I'm only saddened by your lack of judgement, that enabled you to take a valid observation for an "unnecessary outburst of disgust". But I guess you simply disapproved of my off-topic intervention and--not knowing any better--mixed some words together, splashed them in a couple of ready-made phrases and let them do the thinking for you.
