STF - The Term | Home
adj. 1. sorrowful - 2. unsatisfactory, deplorable
[from technical:] adj. 1.specialising in industrial, practical or mechanical arts and applied sciences - 2. adj. skilled in practical and mechanical arts
noun. 1. abnormal person, animal, thing - 2. adj. oddly different from what is normal
The term in its current form originated at some time in 1997. It was first uttered by Andrew Ace as an insult towards some of the later-to-be-known-as STFs. It stuck fairly quickly as a term of disparagement. Only today is the term being embraced as a compliment; it indicates membership of an elite group (cf. geek).
