Illustration for article titled An Oppositelock PSA: Opponaut vs Opponaught

I see a lot of people using different terms to describe us. A brief description of suffixes:

- naut means a voyager, explorer, or traveler according to Wictionary. So things like astronaut, juggernaut, psychonaut, et cetera. I feel like the people who use Opponaut are more correct in their usage.


- naught/nought means “nothing”. For example, the Dreadnought, as a ship, was named that because it fears nothing. The people who use Opponaught are saying “Opposite Nothing”, basically.

I can’t tell you what to do, as I legally can’t enforce word usage except in certain cases, but I hope this helps.
