Meaning of WARLORDING

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

The act of excoriating a bloated, ugly or derivative sig block. Common grounds for warlording include the presence of a signature rendered in a buaf, over-used or cliched sig quotes, ugly ascii art, or simply excessive size. The original "Warlord" was a biff-like newbie c. 1991 who featured in his sig a particularly large and obnoxious ASCII graphic resembling the sword of Conan the Barbarian in the 1981 John Milius movie; the group name alt.fan.warlord was sarcasm, and the characteristic mode of warlording is devastatingly sarcastic praise.
