This is a discussion about こぼし話

is this a word?

it's not on alc
the example sentence in weblio doesn't use the word!

Of course it is, all you're doing is combining the nominalised form of こぼす with 話. Just because it's not a dictionary entry doesn't mean you can't say it.

大辞林 lists 零し屋 as a person who immediately complains, so 零し話 seems legit to me. And if you google it there are also various examples of this word used in various texts.
