Documenting one of my neologisms, in the vain (?) hope of preserving credit of authorship:
Cyberformication (n) to cyberformicate (v) - the strange feeling your website is being crawled. By extension, any sixth sense concerning electronic media being invaded by uninvited parties, such as computer virus infections, robots, etc. "Imelda felt her spine shudder at the thought of her blog being cyberformicated." "When Antonio grep'd his system process table, he realized that his eery feeling of cyberformication was probably in error."
