New word: NARU
I have spotted this new word on websites and news groups. It appears as NARU, but I predict it will shift to the lower case naru as it slides from acronym to ordinary word.
NARU comes from Not A Registered User, the mark of an ebay user who has been struck off for bad behaviour. Naru is mostly used as a verb, meaning to disqualify.
I’ll quote a sentence from a post on rec.collecting.coins: One interesting part of all this is how quickly eBay NARU’ed her.
This one’s from a website: Many a NARU of a scam auction seller is a result of eBay being quickly alerted by a concerned chat board member.
And, on alt.marketing.online.ebay, I found a thread on the meaning of NARU.
