You're not that deep a thinker.
And please stop lying. It's unbecoming.
It wasn't a typo. You tried to coin a new word in your original post. You said as much. Epic fail.

Well, that explains that. Try putting cipping into your favorite search engine and you'll get quite a few results (ignore corrections.) So the word isn't brand new but miles away from the original subject. My hat's off to you, so to speak, if you can make lemonade out of that.
