It is "Steel Navy speak." We are admonished at the top of the board not to post eBay items. At one point, it got carried away to the point that anyone even typing the word "eBay" usually generated a response (not from the moderator) squwaking about posting about eBay. So, folks began to refer to it as "that evil site we shouldn't mention...you know what I mean..." Which then further condensed to simply "that evil site." Now, it's become a sort of habit to use this shorthand...the evil site.
(I know, I know... I just said "eBay"!!! I said "eBay" !!! Standby, the world will end shortly...)
