- 1. Internet slang used to describe someone who is an annoying, irritating or stupid computer user (or combination thereof). Pronounced "loser". cf LART.
- 2. Local user. The term originates from an incident at MIT where hackers
repeatedly changed "users" to "losers" on a message at
logon. Eventually a compromise was reached on the term "luser",
which has since been taken to mean local user.
