That's true, I also got the impression that they especially dislike the TERM... and I agree, the closeness to jizz IS pretty disgusting. Lisbane sounds very nice!
I usually take the time and write Jane/Lisbon, except on twitter, where every letter counts happy ...

I agree. That's what I meant too. I don't mind shipping the two but I would have definitely used a better and respectful term to ship characters that I love.

TerPat? JanLis? Sorry, just being facetious.
The Jisbon term is not that bad (although I have declared my doubts for this union before), except for the fact that it puts more emphasis on Lisbon compared to Jane.

To Fangs4fun:
I expect I miss further negative connotations because of language / cultural differences (I am Greek and live in Greece having lived in the UK for 18 years).
I must admit I had to look up the term 'shipping' in Google.

lenacr, I am Asian but I do read a lot so have become familiar with certain words like jizz. try googling it. or not. sometimes, ignorance is bliss.

Am I the only one who doesn't get the 'jizz' connotation? Perhaps ignorance is bliss. dry

Jizz is a slang word for the male ejaculate, but it's derogatory and not very poetic... in German we would say "Wichse", that's not a word you use in normal conversation- or pretty much in ANY conversation at all :D. It's just a "bad" word, and I can understand that they don't like the sound of "Jisbon" regarding this fact.
And, yes: I couldn't resist to give an explanation for that, sorry to all my friends who would have loved NOT to know.

Thanks to all first and second English language users for the enlightenment, but, in this case, ignorance was bliss.
Unfortunately, I do not feel as blissful any more. I don't blame you, Nixenkind; after all we had to know ...
I have also realised that I need a crash course on slang language terms - or maybe not?

Well, people need to know. At least now they understand why people like me hate that word.

I didn't like it before because I'm not a shipper, but can now understand why the cast disliked it, but agree we did need to know. That's what friends are for.

Much better than the other word, but I don't think it will catch on.
