Comment Bricked = Toileted (Score 1) 294

Bricked should be reserved for the hardware related destruction of a machine.

I prefer the term toileted when the exploit only causes Windows XP re-flushing.

For the destruction of a data centre, I recommend the term "constipated". Ie the entire data centre was constipated by the active-x exploit.

When an entire country is disrupted by an exploit I feel the term "mega-plopped" is fitting.

I also feel the general population would relate better to these terms and these terms would help motivate them to avoid such incidents via mental imagery association. The idea of a brick has little symbolic value, especially as many computers are shaped like bricks anyway.
