Exactly. If they dont understand what it means then maybe they will post it somewhere else. Most likely not but we will see how it goes.

I very much doubt that people who didn't "get it" the first time around would even know what "scripting and reverse engineering" means.
Precisely!  If they're confused by it they'll more likely post in a forum they understand.  Simple words like "Troubleshooting" scream "Hey newbie post here!"

Even if there is no perfect best name, the change is a good one. Pretty much every name suggested by anyone was better than "Tech Related", so regardless of which was chosen it would have been an improvement. The old name was consistently getting people posting stuff that didn't belong there, and this name is a little more clearly NOT a support name.
