Perhaps the hispanohablantes in this list can clarify something for me. A= few years ago, I heard that the word _joda_ is Spanish for "fag" (the America= n usage). But I've also heard people (mostly non-Spanish-speakers) tell me = that the words is _joto_. _Joda_ sounds more likely since it appears to be rel= ated to _joder_ (fuck). So which is it? :) -- Eric Christopherson
