Jump to user comments
jargon /doh-mayn'ist/ 1. Said of a domain address (as
opposed to a bang path) because the part to the right of the
"@" specifies a nested series of "domains"; for example,
esr@snark.thyrsus.com specifies the machine called snark in
the subdomain called thyrsus within the top-level domain
called com. See also big-endian.
2. Said of a site, mailer or routing program which knows how
to handle domainist addresses.
3. Said of a person (especially a site admin) who prefers
domain addressing, supports a domainist mailer, or
proselytises for domainist addressing and disdains bangpaths. This term is now (1993) semi-obsolete, as most sites
have converted.
