LSD Dictionary Project -- please come help

Okay, I think that there are a lot of words thrown around that may need clarification.  We should consider them all, any term used commonly on LSD may be nominated, then we reach some sort of agreement of what the word means.

First word is:

postwhore


I thought it was just someone that posts like nothing substantive, so little as a smiley or just a letter as they complete a word.  But maybe I'm just being conservative, because that is what it originally meant on LSD.  In the good old days. 

ACK!

(EDIT: I knew it meant post whore, but I didn't get the dubya part.)

Postwhore is someone who posts often and across multiple threads  just for the sake of posting often and across multiple threads, and with no othe motive.

Thou, by this definition, is a postwhore; Dunson - since he has humor as his objective; rapid posting as humor - isn't.

That's straight from the OED.

Stanley's socializing. Or - what's the word? - shmoozing.

Why shouldn't it be?

One's the basis for the latter. It's just about makiing the transition, which itself is just a matter of practice, and of having a few good stories up one's sleeve.
