Misspelling folksonomy

I don't really like the term "folksonomy", mostly because it's not a taxonomy: not hierarchical, not tree-shaped. Chris McEvoy suggests "usersaurus". And Tom Coates says that the first time he heard the term, he really thought it was spelled "fauxonomy". I think I'll adopt that one, and hope that it at least becomes an acceptable alternative spelling.
