    As the risk of not posting obvious spam, red pill language (with its constantly mutating use of words, puns and allusions) reminds me of polari: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polari

    Now I am not saying the communities that use these two different cants are at all equivalent. But their needs are similar – forms of language that avoid full comprehension by outsiders while allowing for in-group identification and communication.
