How about a domain of webmasters. Or a whole host of webmasters.

I first thought of a directory but then I realised it would be lost on the XP generation...

Well, I'm tempted to say "A World of Webmasters", but I'm sure I would just get Boo'd down.

I vote for a "host" of webmasters.

Or perhaps a gaggle/google

Bearing in mind that one has a "shrewdness of apes", how about a "worrying of webmasters"? (That is a "worrying about my Adsense revenue and Google rank of webmasters") <g>

Going through most of WebmasterWorld forums, those sugestions jumped to my mind :

A clan of webmasters,
A clew of webmasters,
A den of webmasters,
A pit of webmasters,
A sounder of webmasters,
A tribe of webmasters,
A plague of webmasters,
A thicket of webmasters,
A shrewdness of webmasters,
A lodge of webmasters,
A rascal of webmasters,
A litter of webmasters,
A peep of webmasters,
A drunken ship of webmasters,
A convocation of webmasters,
A panel of webmasters,
A scull of webmasters,
A horde of webmasters,
A woop of webmasters,
A bunch of (sour) webmasters,
A cruft of webmasters,
A kettle of webmasters,
A team of webmasters,
A cry of webmasters,
A charm of webmasters, (that is the Mac forum),
A party of webmasters, (You are here).

I guess we have a mosaic of webmasters, here.

a passle of webmasters

a run of webmasters

a wankle of webmasters

I don't see why not.

Also, SPAM (as in the food variety) traditionally came packaged in a tin can....

Perhaps for the more white-hatted a "jar" might be more appropriate (also conveniently a slang term for a glass of beer).

A can of webmasters (a group of scrapers and spammers).
A jar of webmasters (all the rest).

Thats what I meant ;oP

I suppose only UK webmasters would get that one. Is SPAM available in the states?

Monty Python is popular there, and that's probably good enough!

And I guess a collection of self-educating webmasters such as we have here would rightly be called "a school of webmasters".

Popular? Why there's a Spam Jam [media.hormel.com]...

Only in America! ;)

Nope, sorry. I've decided to kick them out.

But mcavic!

Surely spammers (i do not include myself) are the best SEO's. They get the top results, the most traffic and probably make the most money if thats important.

Sure, I don't agree with their tactics but these are the guys that are beating the SE algo's.

So, I am going to re-include them ;oP

a fine mess of webmasters

a lava lamp of webmasters

(if you have a lava lamp nearby, and you stare at it for 20 minutes or so while thinking about this question, then it will make perfect sense)

"host" is my favourite

a bot of WMs
a bother of WMs
a linkage of WMs
a corroboration of WMs
a click of WMs
a pageful of WMs
a build of WMs
a release of WMs
a publication of WMs
an exchange of WMs
a banner of WMs

this is a great thread
