No. I would have no idea what "maffs" means if I hadn't seen Sebastian question

view this post on Zulip Kenny Lau (Apr 01 2018 at 08:49):

it's a meme

view this post on Zulip Patrick Massot (Apr 01 2018 at 08:49):

Kenny, did you create it yourself?

view this post on Zulip Kenny Lau (Apr 01 2018 at 08:49):

yes

view this post on Zulip Patrick Massot (Apr 01 2018 at 08:49):

I thought only admins could do that

view this post on Zulip Patrick Massot (Apr 01 2018 at 08:49):

I vote you rename it to math

view this post on Zulip Patrick Massot (Apr 01 2018 at 08:49):

It's less specific than mathlib

view this post on Zulip Kenny Lau (Apr 01 2018 at 08:50):

I'm afraid I can't rename it

view this post on Zulip Patrick Massot (Apr 01 2018 at 08:50):

What about deleting it?

view this post on Zulip Kenny Lau (Apr 01 2018 at 08:51):

I can't do it either

From https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Maffs it seems you need to have been a student in an English speaking country to understand this word

@Sebastian Ullrich Can you delete this stream?

view this post on Zulip Sebastian Ullrich (Apr 01 2018 at 08:54):

I renamed it. Do tell me if you decide on a different name.

Okay okay, I'll trust the native speaker :P

view this post on Zulip Kenny Lau (Apr 01 2018 at 08:55):

I'm not a native speaker lol

Now we can bikeshed about maths vs math forever.

yes we can

view this post on Zulip Kenny Lau (Apr 01 2018 at 08:56):

maths?

view this post on Zulip Kevin Buzzard (Apr 01 2018 at 14:36):

Although this whole chat sometimes gets frivolous, I think "maffs" is taking a bit too far. I don't care either way between maths (UK English) and math (US English) but either of them are infinitely preferable to the meme IMO.
