    The name 'PinStack' defines the nature of our community:

    PIN [. pin] noun - Each BlackBerry device has a unique PIN (Personal identification number), like every phone line has a unique phone number. PINs are up to 8 characters long e.g. 20202020. Users can send messages directly PIN-to-PIN and thus they gather at PinStack to find other BlackBerry users in their area.

    Stack [. stack] verb - A pile of things in large number more or less neatly arranged one on top of another. In this case stacks of BlackBerry (PIN) users.

    I like the break down that you gave, cause I was wondering myself what the meaning was the other day when my wife asked me the same question!

    Yup, good spot. We will change "verb" to noun. Bad cut and paste from 4 years ago.
