New theurjism: ivorrhea
See this post and above for a discussion of the phenomenon known as ivorrhea, as in irritable ivory tower syndrome. It's basically a critique of verbose and indecipherable academic jargon. We can still write concisely and articulately without all the explosive ivorrhea. Fortunately my degree is in English, where Struck & White were the measure of intelligible communication, even and especially of arcane esoterica like postmetaphysics or English literature.
