To the friend who sent this Urban Dictionary posting (see below) to me: I would NEVER quote Wikipedia!

Nevertheless, I shall take the not-so-subtle reference to heart.

Not that I have been influenced in any way by the internet, but LSTMS to you, Missy!

1. a person who is excessively concerned with looking up minor details and rules on wikis (notably Wikipedia) or with displaying their internet-learning, esp. when it has just been learned.

The wikipedant was constantly on her phone, checking and correcting our ENTIRE conversation.
