Default [Dixonary] Round 3075 SIALID voting time


Sixteen definitions of SIALID follow. One is correct. The rest are your inventions. They have been edited slightly for format consistency and are in ascending order of character count. That might not correspond to visual length in your email display font. (A few look out of order in mine, but I trust Excel to count characters correctly.)

Please vote for two you like for any reason by Reply to this message before the deadline that follows the list. If you realize now that you know what SIALID means, let me know me by private email to emallach (AT) verizon (DOT) net <mailto:emallach (AT) verizon (DOT) net>.
