Savegraduation has a rare and possibly unique mental disorder he calls logaesthesia, which is basically OCD meets lexical-gustatory synaesthesia. He tastes the words he hears or reads, feeling as if he is swallowing them. Different words have different tastes. Some words he finds gross or slimy, and he has to get them out of his system when he encounters them. To do this, he performs a ritual called purging.

These are the purge words to avoid using when you are writing Inner Bruise. If you find a contribution that has one of these words in it, feel free to change the wording to avoid the word, so Savegraduation will not have to endure it when he reads the final product in book form or hears it as a book on tape.
