Do you mean that "heterodox" has a negative connotation?

comment Correct usage of “viz.”?
@FumbleFingers, Hmm, so "viz" does have a use here, to explicate details isn't it?

comment What is the opposite of “meta”?
What about "unmeta"? If x is "metadata", then unmeta-x will give you "data"

comment Differences between e.g., viz. and i.e.
@Lynn, Just to clarify, I'm not comparing e.g. here, I'm comparing i.e. with viz. Look at the sentence "he likes some fruits, viz, apples and oranges". The viz part is restating/clarifying the previous part "some fruits". In this case, wouldn't i.e. be more appropriate?

comment Is it correct to use “punctuation outside of the quotations”, or “inside?”
@MichaelKjörling, Yes, so it has nothing to do with being logical/illogical; it's simply clearer and less ambiguous.

comment Correct usage of “viz.”?
@Jim, But "specifically" cannot replace all cases. So it's not really a good comparison imo.
