I think I may have invented Computer User - Non-Technical... In about 1999...

From a similar age we used to have UTS (User Too Stupid) and COD (Customer On Drugs - for when they swore blind that the UNIX terminal used to have GUI before the latest patch and similar...)

Both these (and others) were retired after an 'incident' when a major customer asked to look at some of their own support ticket records during a visit to our offices...

(Anon because I am now *much* more responsible and would obviously never use any such acronym nowadays!)
