This word came from the alt.polyamory newsgroup (at least in my experience), and I find myself wanting to use it in other contexts frequently. Most of those contexts are ones where nobody would know what it means, and this is a notable hole in my casual-language vocabulary.

So, definitions, insofar as it works in my idiolect:

seeble, transitive verb [humorous mock-backformation from sibling, brother or sister]: To have a (gender-nonspecific) sibling relationship with the subject, particularly in the metaphorical sense of sharing the same feelings about the current topic of discussion and/or supportiveness and feeling sympathy.

seeble, interjection [from transitive verb seeble]: An expression that one seebles the person one is replying to.

I don't think I've thought about 'seeble' for around ten years, but you're so right. Or, in other words, 'seeble'.

The closest thing I can think of is the old Soviet usage of tovarich.

huh, i've only ever seen it as an interjection (for which the current replacements seem to be "this!" and "that!")
