Etymology[edit]

Before the Internet became mainstream in the mid-1990s, Usenet was largely restricted to colleges and universities, meaning that September (the start of the academic year) represented the largest annual influx of new users.

Proper noun[edit]

Eternal September

  1. (Internet slang) September 1993, the month in which Internet service provider America Online began offering Usenet access to its userbase, leading to a large influx of new posters with little or no idea of netiquette.
