= T =
1. [ITS] A guest on the system, especially
one who generally logs in over a network from a remote location for
comm mode, email, games, and other trivial purposes. One step
below luser. ITS hackers often used to spell this
turist, perhaps by some sort of tenuous analogy with
luser (this usage may also have expressed the ITS culture's
penchant for six-letterisms, and-or been some sort of tribute to
Alan Turing). Compare twink, lurker, read-only user. 2. [IRC] An IRC user who goes from channel to channel
without saying anything; see channel hopping.
