What is db8 short for?


You're most likely to encounter db8 while talking with a member of the 4n6 (forensics) community. Forensics participants often engage in public db8s, as part of tournaments and other competitions. When discussing debates and debating strategies in forensics-related forums, participants sometimes shorten debate to db8.

However, you may also receive db8 in text, chat, or social media messages sent by people who don't participate in (and may not even know about) forensics. For example, your boss may tell you a topic is "not up for db8," when telling you how to perform a work task.
