I wonder who was the mentally disturbed moron who forged this absurd neologism?

Well to be honest, I think it's a rather good neologism. The software is exempt from it's previous license.

It's also exempt from technical support and update commitments, guarenteed compatiblity and expressions of liability on behalf of the developer.

Well then there you. It's not abandonware as the author still has interest in it, it's not freeware or shareware. It's *exemptionware*.

So, some people here do have a sense of humor, which is a sign of intelligence. Even the mentally disturbed...

Sure it is. It's a tone of delirious association, found in squizofrenia but also present on the creative process. Hence the popular expression "of genious and fool, we all have our share". You could eventually call it the colour redshift.

You see Amie, being a fan of the original Star Trek series, the reason for that guy's face palm can only be from the disappointment with the mediocrity of the "TNG" script, of the actors(himself included), in fact of everything involved in that production line.
Good quality is something that lacks in u.s. intellectual, literary and artistic production these days. I guess the market's logic influences negatively the quality of things produced.
You can say there's an exemption of quality because other interests have priority.
So that and every expression embedded in mediocre, degraded u.s. "culture" is unfortunate, since there are many other good references which can be used for expressing one's thoughts.
Like Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier's "Self Portrait with Headache", so you could just say Meissonier's face palm.

A neologism is essentially a newly-coined expression.

Perhaps... or I could allude to I think it was Jake who posted an ASCII version of that the other day and thus amuse myself.

What did I do? ASCII? No, no, last week, I was just the wayward getting all that great help with the Vaio and W2K

And I have no problem with said term here. I think it's rather straight forward... Antidisestablishmentarianism, *that* I have problems with. When I was a kid, that was the longest non-scientific word in the English language. I'm sure that's not true anymore.
