Cool - and useful!  I was beginning to worry you suffered from athazagoraphobia.  :wink:

This topic would be more appropriate in the Flesh It Out forum - you will get better responses to lists and such.  Greetings Traveler is for people to introduce themselves (and then watch the weirdness...).

Didn't I already delete a replica of this?

I have moved it from Greetings Traveler to Citadel Tavern.

Greccio- please pay attention to where you post things. Greetings Traveler is for introductions, not for lists of phobias or simply talking.

Fear of knowledge,I think.

You had some questions which I will answer, but here is something I just have to interrupt with.

Athazagoraphobia
Athazagoraphobia is defined as the fear (or strong reaction to) of forgetting, being ignored, or generally anything dealing with the idea of forgetfulness. The definiton can be extended to depression, anger, or deliberate isolation caused by one being forgotten, or dealing with death (Thus, being forgotten by those who have passed away).

Cool listing:

Philias:  List of Philias is a list of words with the postfix phile or philia, which comes from the greek word love and means generally the love of.

** http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/List+of+philias **


Now back to our regular post......

Flesh it out is for ideas that are half formed or incomplete.  You post them in there, we give advice and take shots at them all in an attempt to make them more complete and better.

In short they are ideas you are working on.


The Idea Scroll is for posts that work best for lists and posts that can be added too by anyone.

IN short, they are lists of ideas/ information

Got it?

Does anyone know what the fear of fearing nothing is called? Because many of my friends have tried to find something that scares me but they haven't found anything. Then at the end of our conversation I said that I was afriad that I am afriad of nothing and I was wondering if there was a name for the fear of fearing nothing??

Isn't that the fear of big words and those that suffer from it are supposedly cured if they can say what phobia it is that they suffer from?

I can't remember the name for it just now, but I think one of the weirder ones I've heard of is "fear of thirteen at the dinner table" or something like that.
