I would like to have a kafeeklatsches with you. Just yesterday came across this word- Dionysiokolakes. Epicurus called Plato and Platonist's as Dionysiokolakes. "They are all ACTORS, there is nothing genuine about them." (Dionysiokolax was a popular name for an actor. This i came across while reading the book "Beyond Good and Evil" by Friedrich Nietzsche.

I've heard this word quite often, but i've never seen it spelled. I think it's been anglicised into "Coffee-Klatsch" but the word you mention looks to be German, or Yiddish or something. Interesting to finally see the original spelling of this word, and now I'll need to go look for it's origin.
