Well, this term was invented by Michael Ernest. I sometimes ask his explanations about complicated artifacts of American cultural life (like for example, what is French roast?) and he once compared himself to a cartographer, from where there was only one step to "mapper".
This is how he got this title, so people can have something to talk about

Last time I checked dictionary, there isn't such thing as Mapper.
Now, if there isn't mapper in dictionary, do we REALLY need it here???

Well, most the Indians, Chinese ... perhaps don't have their names in the dictionary.
So?

True, but if you can't find "mapper" instead, you need to either (a) apply common sense to interpret the "-er" suffix, or (b) get a better dictionary.

I think this dictionary just invents things instead of giving the definitions of already existing ones

Nope. Find a good English dictionary and look under "map". Most dictionaries will not waste space to create a separate entry for "mapper"; they will simply list it as a valid modified form under "map". If your dictionary doesn't do this, try another. The www.m-w.com site is the online version of the Merriam-Webster dictionary, which is widely regarded as one of the best dictionaries (possibly the best) for American english. It's not perfect, but it's pretty reliable.
Regarding your rape comment - there is no implication of rape in any of the previous comments. If you're trying to make a joke of some sort, it's probably a bad idea here.

Certainly, I need a dictionary. It, certainly, would be NICE to have a common, with others, one.
I thought that Mapper is the one who is cloning Map. I do not know how it is in USA but near me it is done through having sex. Having sex with a woman that you have never met and from the distance...
OK, it is not rape. I confused the term. I shall not write it, anyway. Sorry...

Where did cloning come in? A mapper is a person who makes a map... a cartographer in fancy terms.

Don't kill the victim of bad (incomplete) dictionaries and of absence of JR Glossary
ME TOO (either think or like). Stop thinking and start doing it!

That's exactly what I have done: applied the common/vulgar sense.
Marvellous dictionary. I even found "razz" there. But what is
eek, that I couldn't find?

Map and Paul,
On graduation from university, alongside with a civil degree I was simultaneously assigned the rank of military engineer officer. For that occasion, a medical commission examined me. A psychiatrist, amongst other doctors, asked me a question: "What is the difference between a bird and an airplane?". I was then young, arrogant and considered me yet quite sane but till now I recall with a shame my first 2 (incorrect) answers.
I am curious if you are able to give the main correct answer to this question?

Moved here from MO where it spent some time for IP tracking. "Don Liu", maybe it's time to stop acting like a fool? Go back to your "College blah-blah-blah Trivia" :roll:
