    @linuxer4fun users is a term for anyone who uses an application website etc. It has no difference between someone who knows what f5 does and someone who don't.

    So a different word for people who are lazy and dont want to google:"how to *" would be nice.

    Muggle is a good start since they see repairing the internet(on/off router) as magic.
