A cry-baby, a sookie, a milquetoast, a plaintiff, yea, a complainant so passive-aggressive as to be given to alternative dispute resolution techniques — immortalised[1] in Otto Büchstein’s unfinished and now lost, opera Die Schweizer Heulsuse. A fan of mediation and other namby-pamby alternative dispute resolution techniques.

Also an example of a geometrical shape with a fractal quality.
