Default [Dixonary] Round 3005 vote for PADDO

Here are 12 definitions for PADDO, one of which came from a real
dictionary. Vote for your two favorites no later than 5 PM EDT, Sunday,
August 11.

1. rough limestone country with underground drainage.

2. (a) A tidal flood which regularly or occasionally rushes into certain
rivers of peculiar configuration or location, in one or more waves
which present a very abrupt front of considerable height, dangerous
to shipping, as at the mouth of the Amazon, in South America, the
Hoogly and Indus, in India, and the Tsien-tang, in China. (b) Less
properly, a very high and rapid tidal flow, when not so abrupt, such
as occurs at the Bay of Fundy and in the British Channel.

3. inferior liquor; a public house that sells this.

4. fermented bean-curd.

5. an Indonesian dessert made from rice balls sweetened with flavored
syrup.

6. [Sl.] any Asian dish consisting mainly of noodles in a sweet sauce.

Absolutely clueless.

I guess I'll just throw my points at the authors of #5 and #11

Cheers,

PS: I don't see my def. Did you never receive my mail, or did I miss the
deadline?

If you sent it to stamps (AT) salsgiver (DOT) com I did not receive it. I didn't see
it at my alternate email either - stampsbythemes (AT) gmail (DOT) com. I didn't see
your reply to the dixonary group either. I don't know why you're being
censored. But you are (at least to me).

Very strange. Do you have a spam filter that might be intercepting my mails?

I sent my def to stamps (AT) salsgiver (DOT) com, on August 10, 9:17 AM local
(Dutch) time.
See attached mail from my sent items folder.

It probably wouldn't have attracted any votes anyway. <shrug>

But I do hope we can get this sorted out before your next deal.

Cheers,
Hugo

I think that's the good feature of the progress email, assuming that a
definition is sent before that's posted, and an email confirming that a
definition has been received.

Mike,

I have voted but I will re vote (I feel so confident of my selections
that it is a vain* hope that the new votes are the same as my last attempt)

#4 and #11
