tourist: [ITS] n. A guest on the system, especially one who
   generally logs in over a network from a remote location for comm
   mode, email, games, and other trivial purposes.  One step below
   luser.  Hackers often spell this turist, perhaps by
   some sort of tenuous analogy with luser (this also expresses the
   ITS culture's penchant for six-letterisms).  Compare twink,
   read-only user.
