Over Thecounter Robot. When someone starts a chat with you and it says, "Encrypted OTR chat initiated." It doesn't really mean "off the record." It means "Over Thecounter Robot," because Gregor the Xtreme is now encrypting the chat for you with his great power and abilities to confound others. He has the ability to speak Navaho Indian. And he thus translates your chat to Navaho-ese. It goes something like this. You say, "hi, how are you?" Gregor translates that to "Hi-o, how-o are-o you-o?" and thus confuses and Russians listening in.
Dude, is your connection OTR? We don't want the Russians hearing what we say.
