I know how to say "to loiter" in Chinese

I used to joke that the English verb "to loiter", as in the "No loitering" sign, is one of the words particularly hard to translate to other languages. Well, thanks to David Feng's useful post with the do's and don'ts of picture-taking in China's railway and subway stations, I now know that at least in Chinese they do have a word for it: 久留 (jiuliu), which means more or less what its components indicate.
