exilic \ eg-ZIL-ik, ek-SIL- \ , adjective; 
  • pertaining to exile, especially that of the Jews in Babylon. 
Origin: Exilic entered English in the 1870s. It is a combination of the word exile and -ic , a suffix that forms adjectives from other parts of speech, occurring originally in Greek and Latin loanwords, as in poetic and metallic. 
Internet Brave , Noun 
  • Used by trolls, e-bullies, and the like, whose sole purpose online is to harass, intimidate, and upset other Internet users on social networking sites (such as Twitter and Facebook), message boards, forums or even comments on news articles. Most likely frustrated pre-teens and middle-aged adults with a computer in Mom's basement. The goal of the Internet Brave seems to be twofold: to bring a user or users to tears and to scare said users off the Internet. However, well-seasoned Internet users will know that the Internet Brave use the Internet as they are incapable of being brave in the real world. The term can be used as a singular or plural description.
Mark is internet brave because he hides behind an alias and wouldn't have the guts to face anyone in real life with his childish antics.
