One for the helpdesk [hopedesk!] folks: when one is referred to as "starfish", is it a reference to being a butthole, or does it mean one is so low on the food chain they have no brain (like arms + legs + head = 5 appendages)? Neither?

It appears to mean a "brainless user". Interestingly, I've not been able to find too many references to it short of TechComedy.com, so maybe it originated there. I'm guessing this is where you came across the word.
