"EVAR!"

The term EVAR is loosely related to the word ever. It is often capitalized and followed by an exclamation point. Evar is used in place of ever for dramatic effect and to further illustrate the point. i.e. TRSI is the greatest online store EVAR!

"Troll"

Someone who posts in a forum with the intent of eliciting a negative response from other posters, or to cause general confusion and otherwise derail a topic.

note: Someone making an off-topic post is not necessarily a troll, they are simply straying from the topic. Someone making repeated off-topic posts with the intent of derailing a topic, is a troll.

We'll always see TRSI all over the place, though. smile

well… except for
RIGHTSTUF!, but you can’t do the
Logo justice with the available fonts here on the Site.

But I shell Cease & Desist IF commanded to do so.

I personally use TRSI, because my spell checker doesn't have a fit when I type it. wink

I guess TRSI can stand for "The Right Stuf, Inc." then. I don't see why you have to drop the word "the" from your name as well.

I'm at a loss. Am I supposed to stop saying TRSI when referring to RightStuf? I can by all means do that, if it's necessary.

"Cheesecake:"

Synonymous with fan service, with particular regard to ecchi.

ex.:"Godannar's cockpit cams are notorious for cheesecake shots."
