    Words made up out of existing words
    Makes no sense
    Adorable was already a word

    Why devalue what was existing to put your twist on what you feel is right and change not only the meaning but the value of the word itself

    You do not do justice in sharing your opinion of a word

  2. Helen

    Love the word adorbs
