I am often very confused by the terms that are used in some contributions to this list.  As a result, I skip those contributions because they don’t add to my understanding of anything.  Creating new words is counterproductive.  If we don’t have a common language, then there is little hope for mutual understanding.  

I’ve been involved with Internet and networking, rather intensively, for more than 25 years, and I am not familiar with this term or others used.  If they are meant to clarify a discussion and move it forward, they are clearly failing to meet that goal.  There is no value added in using terms whose meanings are not commonly understood and agreed upon.
