[after the character in the
Dilbert comic strip] Describes the extreme form of the
property that separates suits and marketroids from
hackers. Compare brain-dead; demented; see
PHB. Always applied to people, never to ideas. The plural form
is often used as a noun. "The pointy-haireds ordered me to use
Windows NT, but I set up a Linux server with Samba instead."
