I misread that as 'cackatitude family'.

Speech
He or she may:
• speak in a monotone voice and/or with unusual or stilted pronunciation; if
he/she appears to have normal language; this may be masking his/her actual
level of understanding
• repeatedly ask the same question or copy/repeat the last phrase they heard
(this is known as ‘echolalia’)
• not respond to questions or instructions
• communicate non-verbally; many people with autism cannot speak
• become noisy or agitated if required to deviate from regular routine
• speak obsessively about a topic that is of particular interest to them, but
which may have no apparent relevance to the situation.

From here

Cockalorum means 'a little man with an unduly high opinion of himself', Oganeil. the 'person' who posted after you is that very cockalorum to whom EQ refers.
I disagree with her, of course. He isn't that big.

Naaa Oganeil.

Cockalorum usually is used in a political sense.

There's been a recent flury of activity on the Politics section.

Also, 'cockalorum' was added to one of the 'new word' threads a while back.

It just has a rude sound to it.

Another similar word, and used in the same context is 'popinjay'

There was a discussion somewhere about the clog back phrase.

I think someone had it confused with as far as a 'clock' back.

Can't find it at mo.

Just mentions of the 'face that'll stand a clogging' one.
