Tribal elder. A title self-assumed with remarkable frequency
by (especially) Usenetters who have been programming for
more than about 25 years; often appears in sig blocks
attached to Jargon File contributions of great archaeological
significance. This is a term of insult in the second or third
person but one of pride in first person.
