As near as I can tell, Webmaster has become a default designation for that
person unfortunate enough to be chosen as the arbiter of the difficulties
your browser has looking at their site, a la the phrase, "If you have any
problems viewing this web page, contact webmaster -at- techcenter -dot- paccar -dot- com -dot- "

My manager designated me as 'webmaster' at the Technical Center here, which
is really frightening considering how little I know about the ins and outs
of HTML. Just because I know more than anyone else here doesn't make me a
master in any stretch of the word.

Or maybe it does, which is even scarier.
