How does 'temious' differ from 'truthy'?

First, and most obvious, is that temious appears to be a real word, not a modern slang attempt at expressing something lamely due to a lack of education in language arts.

Second, temious is more bare-knuckled and disrespectful - noble qualities in forum street fighting.

From the Urban Dictionary:

"Truthiness: The quality of stating concepts one wishes or believes to be true, rather than the facts."

"Temious: Made up, fabricated. Something which sounds true but has no basis in fact or reality."

In temious, one may, or not, wish a thing to be true... it's more of a cage match thing.

I find your discussion both truthy and temious. devil

Logtroll, I write, timorously, to congratulate you on your temerarious temerity in trying such a titanic dissimulation on this site and its tenants. While some might find it mendacious, I think it a testament to your tremendous tenacity, and a lack of tendentious trendency. Let me offer an officious felicitate testimonial to your attainment.

and with temporary temerity of a somewhat tempered tempestuousness, I might add.
