    What does this word mean?

    Dear gods,

    I've a friend studying some computing module in a business degree and needs to do a mini-assignment regarding "internet intermediaries".

    What exactly does this term mean? Darn, we don't even know where to begin looking.

    Pls advise. Thanks!

    With love,
    Xeon

    I do not know exactly what it means (maybe because I'm not a native English speaker).

    But this article seems to be start for understanding: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disintermediation

    With regards

    Thanks a lot, ProgramArtist!

    Well, from my understand, "intermediary" means something like a middle-man, a broker kind of thing, to make things possible between two parties.

    I'm still trying to find an example of an internet intermediary, so if anyone can help, then it'll be good.

    I can gladly offer links to hot adult sites as rewards. Also have plenty of hot vids.

    Thanks,
    Xeon

    I miss hometown too there was one onboard long a go, because he was dumped again and again
    I guess one day it will be my turn, I don't know, but it'll be sad if it happens. This world is small and things are all repeated, but who knows if he/she can avoid it perfectly, right ?
    Homenow looks like a promised replacement at first but I hear hometown only is around with grandpa.

    You're talking gibberish and crap, and I don't even understand what you're talking about!
    There was a guy called Mick last time and he was talking confusing crap like you.

    Btw, are you sure you ain't "high" while typing these? Or maybe you were drunk and wanking yourself?

    I am not Mick absolutely!
    I am talking about my buddy, who has been dumped by a white tall talented Westerner a few years ago.
    I thought her father will have some white yello grandbabies but all things turned out so bad for him and good for his enemies! Round and round we are within the circle.

    LOL, I still don't understand what you're talking about. However, you've convinced me finally that you really is Mick under another user ID!
