This thread is to provide formal acknowledgement to the BCSB forefathers who coined awesomesauce terms written first on BCSB.com. I will edit the list as I find them in the forum, but please use this thread to bring my attention to terms that require appreciation. A second reference by a second poster is required for the OP to get credit. A half-hearted google search will be performed to ensure credit is not falsely given where it's not deserved. Attempts to coin new words just to get listed in this hall of fame will be unfairly ignored at my discretion.

A-List (n) ZenofZoom. A group of riders who existed on BCSB who would post up rides after they had done them, just to share with the rest of the community that their special rides were invitation only events. The demographic was largely made up of people who were very unpopular in highschool. Legend has it that the majority of the A-listers have herpes from having unprotected sex with each other. The existence of the A-list became a topic of ridicule on this forum and in a series of drunken Pub Nights, the V-list was born.See also V-List
Axe-Man (n) - TripleTime. A Fraser Valley film star with a penchant for gardening, and chopping down trees and riders. Rumoured to be related by marriage to Rake-Man.
Bayside Effect (n) - vstromgreg. A scientifically-unproven theory that revenue is inversely and exponentially proportional to customer service. The formula: 1/(any thread + 'bayside')*sqrt(butthurt dogpile clusterbang of epic proportions) = Revenue.
Bingo Dobber - Bandito. A tool used by riders to mark their underwear, as a reminder of a yut-gaaauh moment during their ride.
Chain Rube (n) - leechiahan. A lubricant whose purpose is to make the BCSB search function seemingly inoperable, forgotten, or even invisible.

CLB aka Craigslist Bandito (n) - CoolDaddyGroove. A method of passively engaging in online commerce from afar, to piss off the time-waster that wanted free delivery on an item for which he offered less than half the asking price, postponing the sale twice, and asking for receipts to prove ownership.
Duffey Lake Douche Bag (n) - Chia. Rider who waits on the side of the road, waits for a group of riders to pass, then proceeds to pass each in succession in the middle of dangerous turns. AKA DLDB. See also "Wanker'. Not to be confused with anti-HST voters in either Pemberton or Lillooet.
Flatire (n) - Flatire. Representing the Official Opposition of Everything, this dirtbike enthusiast renewed his BCSB membership in Oct 2011 before succumbing once again to the Banhammer - this time after only a brief but annoying, profanity-laden, cop-hating, troll-baiting, one-week visit. See also 'Dirty Bill' , 'TrollBot', 'CommieBot', 'Sexbot', 'Breakfastandcoffeebot, 'SlowBot', 'Spambot', and 'What the Fuckbot'
FrostyFest (n) - TripleTime. The derailing, shit-flow flurry of typing, angst and anger that occurs immediately after a racist, sexist, religious, nationalist, or otherwise slanderous or insulting post and immediately before an entry in the Banhammer reinstates calm and civility for 2-10 days.

Insect Overlord (n) – Syncro. The Corporate Shadow of motorcycle.com that briefly darkened the Happy Valley of Sportbike Sunshine in Nov 2013. Once alleged to have been the cause of 165,000 downloads of AdBlock in BC alone, and reportedly responsible for the sale of thousands of rolls of tinfoil, the Overlord (aka PhilipB) confirmed #DrinkCocaCola that there will be no changes to the advertising systems on BCSB.com. In fact, advertisements are #FordTough down, and user reaction has been overTYLENOLwhelmingly in favor of changes to the site.

Squaffee/Squambux/Squampton/Squish/Squabucks, etc (n) - vstromgreg. The destination of all rides leaving from the church on Taylor Way. Various nicknames for the destination have existed for decades, but by coining squaffee in 2010, vstromgreg first merged the drink and destination - freeing up valuable time that had been previously wasted typing two or even three words.
Stunna (n) - FiSh_Extreme. One who does not use all the tires on their vehicle at the same time. In a nod to the inner-city culture, this subgroup uses hoodies and loud music to identify themselves. Protective armour is worn on the outside, rumoured to be because hoodies add 10 lbs on camera.

Unknown Rider (n) - Jayson. A reclusive member of the motorcycle community, Unknown Rider has been the subject of countless crashes and several RIP threads. Although it has been noted by several members that Unknown Rider and Sky have never been seen together, and although a member of BCSB until banhammered for opening a second account, Unknown Rider continues to elude identification.
V-List (n) - BLADERUNNER_954. The mandate of the V-list was to include all riders, regardless of their choice of ride and their motto is "Sometimes when I come, I fart a little". The "shocker" was adopted as the official wave/greeting and later replaced with the "minivan" because it won more humour points. No actual shockers or minivans were exchanged between participants .The etymology of V-List has ranged through many words being substituted for the letter V. Originally, it referenced V-Twins, but later came to include the word vagina when CHIA bought a 650, leading to the HE-Strom/She-Strom analogy and is the reason that most people know the DL-650 as the VaginaStrom.

off the top of my head, looks like I was first to mention the funbusters ...

I like traffic cones :S

What a great thread. Eventually needs to be stickied methinks.

My only one I can think of is the Sumas Mountain Axe Man. SMAM? From one of the August Valley Rides a couple of weeks ago.

You were first to use 'Smokeshowed' but I originally couldn't find a 2nd collaborating reference. I did, however, find a subsequent reference (I forget whose) to 'Smokeshow' in that same context. Therefore, you get credit.
Sweet! I knew I'd used it early on, but wasn't sure if I'd picked it up from someone else. :)

Nexus Pass: Elitist pass that grants you quick and easy access to the holy land of motorcycle riding. Must give up all rights, soul, dignity, and self respect to the US border guards to get one.
Sorry, fails both the google test and the 'trying to get into this thread by making up a definition' test.
