Paklurk

A specific form of Lurker: a Pakistani lurking on BRF. The BRF forum attracts a pretty large number of Pakistani readers, as evidenced by the IP logs. Many of these readers merely read the forums without registering to post. Such readers are called Paklurks.

Quite a few paklurks are prominent journalists and policy makers in the Pakistani government. Evidence of this comes from the fact that certain phrases that originated on BRF are sometimes reproduced verbatim in articles by Pakistani journalists, and in at least one TV program, a couple of Pakistani officials were found discussing a subject that was first proposed by a BRF member.

  • Condom Nation - A phrase coined on BRF that appeared in an article by a Pakistani journalist quoting a retired Pakistani General.
