Purgy Definations:
Query and Conquer!
I am allowed to write utter poo.
Sweet cartwheeling Jesus! ( a connectible idiom for purgies, donated by sunna's bro. )
/bootay shake = xiaotien’s signature encouragement
*vamp dust* = Purgatory’s good-luck charm (it works!)
HOT SMOOCH = exactly what you think it means
Q = Query
R = Rejection
RQ = Revenge Query, which you send to a different agent immediately after an R
PRQ = Pre emptive Revenge Query, which you send when you have a feeling your latest Q is about to get Rd.
SNI - Shiny New Idea (usually hits when you're in the middle of a WIP)
Pork Chop / Pock Chop / Sorry, mike = warning that you're about to say something risqué
Fruitcake = warning that you're about to make a potentially risque religious joke
Nicorn – Purgatory term for Speshul Snowflake
Suck Lime Green Donkey Balls / LGDB = what Rs of any stripe do, but especially form Rs on requested material
Faux-Suckitude Doldrums = the slump we all get into when we're stuck or when we've gotten a bunch of Rs. "Faux" being the key: we do NOT suck!
The Rat Rule: No teasing unless you are repping

I'm fairly new, so forgive my ignorance. This is a list of author who were active in The Query Hell and subsequently found a publisher/agent?

No, not completely. This is a list of people who at one time posted frequently in the "No News is No News Purgatory" long-running threads. It hasn't been updated in a few years. I'm going to unsticky it and let it sink now.
