Internet meme

"X"ing is an Internet meme typically involving the music video for the 1987 song "Never Gonna Give You Up". The meme is a bait and switch: a person provides a web link that they claim is relevant to the topic at hand, but the link actually takes the user to the video. The URL can be masked or obfuscated in some manner so that the user cannot determine the true destination of the link without clicking. When a person clicks on the link and is led to the web page, he or she is said to have been "X"-ed. The song may have been favored for this use by those regarding it as the worst popular song of all time. "X"ing has extended beyond Web links to playing the video or song disruptively in other situations, including public places; this culminated when the song made a surprise appearance in the 2008 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, a televised event with tens of millions of viewers.

x = What term?

During the colonial days, British steamers regularly plied between London and various far flung out posts of the Empire. Journeys on these steamers took anywhere from a week to 3 months. Due to prevailing tides and wind conditions on the high seas, passengers preferred a cabin on the port side of a ship, when heading out of Britain, and the starboard when heading home. Hence passengers who could afford it paid higher fares for these cabins. Hence the rich and moneyed were able to secure the best cabins on a voyage for themselves. This has given rise to a term which is usually associated with the rich and fashionable.What is it?
