To reluctantly be a pedant over your quite amusing post:

What GW did goes beyond "ish". They originally created a evilly clever plan to be "ish", but then quickly they abandoned that plan and just flat out lied for a long time...

Both ish-es were intended as understatements. The trouble with brevity is, intent may not come through.

Meh. The brevity made the thing work quite nicely. It was full of pith. I was just being pedantic.

Ew, the more I learn about GW the less respect I have.

Caryatis,

I know nothing else about it, other than that someone I really respect is a professor there. But that story is plenty unsettling.
