    YVRguy saidIndiscrete/indiscreet;

    Just laughing at how long it took for (2!?) people to notice it. Kind of confirms my theory that just about no one under 40 can actually spell nowadays.

    PS- if I saw it on Grindr I'd assume someone is hiding an existing relationship and would guess that if they were hiding their sexuality they would just go with "Down Low".



    Your theory about people under 40 is shit.

    As are all sweeping generalizations about "the youth of today" being lazy, immoral, uninformed, apathetic, uncultured, ungrateful, shallow, fast, unreliable, immature, self-centered, etc. And I believe different dictionaries allow for differing spellings of "centered" in case you were thinking of pointing that out.

    Such generalizations reek of cynicism where young people are concerned.

    I haven't read your profile and I don't know what sort of person you are. But I hope that at some stage in your life it occurs to you to get to know someone under 40. Invest in the future by mentoring one or two people - don't just write them off by making assumptions about them.

    (I don't know why, but I couldn't let that one go)

    jimzdc saidI always assume it means closeted and/or cheating. Bad news either way.

    And I agree it's downright bizarre that so many homos on these porny skin sites refer to themselves as "discreet." I can think of few things less discreet than posting a picture of your asshole on Manhunt, but even so....

    Oh now, I believe my old childhood pal Aristotle was complaining about the very same thing last week, or maybe it was two millennia ago.


    If your pal Aristotle was complaining about the same thing two thousand years ago, then the issue cannot be with the youth of "today". Or "nowadays".

    It's with all youth who have existed since your pal noticed the problem. There is no adult alive today who wasn't young at some stage.

    So even as one generation points fingers at the other saying, "The youth of today" it indicts itself. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

    I always read it as code for, "I won't tell if you don't.". As others have said, it is a clear indication that someone is doing (or is prepared to do) something on the sly.

    No matter how it's spelled it just means they are someone who I don't want to deal with.
