How did "Schadenfreude" become a forbidden word?

Postby nordicmetalhead » Wed Apr 05, 2006 19:31

I used it in my LiveJournal and it's suspended now, I can't even get an answer as to why.

HUH?

then again, the word "kakkerlak" (cockroach) isn't accepted in most Afrikaans literature... probably because the first 3 letters thereof is a swear word in Afrikaans. (meaning "sh*t")

^^ you mean llike "kakk"? :D

sounds like "kack" which germans use in "so ein kack" ("that's crap")
and it comes from "kacken" which means "to poop".

or to be on the current news of the company I work at:
My boss has a "kack" day because one of our warehouses burn down
last night ...... no joke. the whole town here smells after burned rubber, metal and
whatnot.

According to my dictionary the english word for 'skadefryd' is glee.

» skadefryd (100%) (Dansk-Engelsk) glee (fx there was a hint of glee at the many investors who got their fingers burned when the IT bubble burst).


The way I've heard it used is joy over other peoples misery, or bad things happening to them.

I didn't make that up.. it's the name of a goth/industrial/vinyl night here in DC. And yes it means "joy at the pain of others" in German. Supposedly coined by a certain Austrian housepainter.
