|(job, jargon)||system operator - (Always abbreviated to "sysop") /sis'op/ A term
used in the BBS world for the operator of a bulletin-board
system (who is usually also the owner).|
A common neophyte mistake on FidoNet is to address a message to "sysop" in an international echo, thus sending it to hundreds of sysops around the world.
Contrast: system administrator.
