Things I got that I liked: stonewall, filibuster, ploy
Things that I got that I didn't like so much: hoax, susppended
What I would really like are terms specific to a topic or group (sport, chess, etc) that would give someone familiar with the term a unique picture. I am totally open to any language as long as you can give me a good description of the nuiances. The fandom is Harry Potter not that that makes much of a difference in this case.
Thanks for the help!
