Mensagem:  I always knew it to mean a guy who, while discreetly courting and bedding other people's best female friend, talks little or reveals nothing at all about it. If he ever does, he will do with an absurdidly muffled voice or vehemently deny any sexual involvement with his best friend's best female friend.

Does the forum board see it just as one more of those words for which no single English word exists?

Come-quieto usu. hyphenated.
