system operator

<job, jargon> (Always abbreviated to "sysop") /sis'op/ A term used in the BBS world for the operator of a bulletin-board system (who is usually also the owner).

A common neophyte mistake on FidoNet is to address a message to "sysop" in an international echo, thus sending it to hundreds of sysops around the world.

Contrast: system administrator.
