nym
Last modified: Wednesday, May 01, 2002 

A shortened form of the word pseudonym, a nym is an anonymous invented name that a person can use in e-mail or in online discussions arenas, such as chat rooms or newsgroups. Some people create nyms because they want to protect their privacy on the Internet, while others create nyms to keep from being identified because they are involved in unethical practices, such as spam.
