Luckily, they chose to demure, though they did compromise by recreating the very difficult to achieve quadruple auto-fellative maneuver pictured on the series' finale advertising.As much as Defamer might have wanted Oprah and crew to be more demure in their discussions ala dump, the word the editor was groping for here is "demur."
Meanwhile, we wish the editors would reconsider their use of adjectives, qualifiers and commas. Doesn't the sentence read better like this?
