Quantible Googlies

These are things you don’t want people to find out about you when they Google your name.

Of the 17,653 pages in a blog I have dealt with a few self-inflicted googlies and have removed anything that might be deemed a googly by others.

Is it a word?

Did I use it correctly?

Have others used it?

Does it make sense?

The other day I heard ‘Quantible’ or ‘Quantable’ as a mash-up of ‘Quantifiable’ and ‘Accountable.’ (He thinks). It was said in a Radio 4 broadcast and caught the ear of the producer as the use of the word was repeated in all the trailers.
