The Heldering Syndrome is a term used to describe psychological phenomenon wherein a good idea for a new word on urbandictionary.com is taken hostage by others and the once positive feelings from acceptance into urbandictionary.com are turned into dismay, shame, shock and the need to apologize for ever thinking that defining the word was funny.

The following are viewed as the conditions for Heldering syndrome to occur.

* When seeing defined word on twitter makes you cringe

* When seeing or hearing reference to the defined word, or a word that is similar to the defined word immediately feeling as if you must issue a mass apology.
S: Did you see all of the heldering going on? What the heldering?

T: (sound of head hitting desk)

S: I knew it. Eventually she'd get Heldering Syndrome. Uh, can somebody send held- i mean help?
