Preamble: This glossary thread has been put here by request for newer members who sometimes find it difficult to make out what those of us - who have been here for what seems like an eternity - are talking about. It is intended for members to post a question about what a term or expression means and for the members to post back an answer in a intelligent, polite manner. This forum has strict rules: One of the most important is that members do not 'threadcrap'. The following is what we define Threadcrapping to be:- ""Thread Crapping" occurs when a person comes into a thread and posts something contrary to the spirit/intent of the thread, often derailing the discussion or turning it into an argument. For example, coming into a thread about "The Greatest Beatles Album" and posting "The Beatles were overrated" is a thread crap. Another example: In a thread titled "I love my new Apple Macintosh!" or someone posting "PCs are better and cheaper" is a thread crap." Any posts in this thread that contravene this will be removed by the Gorts (Moderators) and the offender(s) sent a warning.
