Comments: Flipping coinage

Google turns up 674 references. Granted most of those are for "a friend in law school" or something, but at least a few people are using it the way you do. You may need to get it into print in order to secure rights to the coinage.

L and I use this all the time. When we joke about the possibility of breaking up, we talk about who gets custody of the friends.

Damned simultaneous coinages! (Well, near-simultaneous.) Other people beat me to "spamments" as well. Sigh.

For what its worth, igry is now getting major play among the attorneys at my old firm (it comes up a lot in law firm life). If one of them manages to slip it into a brief, I'll make sure to let you know.
