Well I'll raise my hand next time though so everyone can tell I'm being sarcastic.

jessehaysfl5010d ago

From my post below


i remember back in my D1 battledotnet days when it was "new bee" then

noob is word describing someone with less or no skill in a particular endeavor

he is a noob (has no skill)

i thought noob ment your a rookie in a game. like you just started playing so your not good at it yet. you know 'new'b. what if you just suck at a game but you've been playing it for months, would you still be a noob? like, if somebody that plays god of war can only beat the game on easy mode, but they've played through it a dozen times, do they still constitute as a noob?

anyways, back on topic, i dont think internet slang should be counted as a real word just because its popular. i mean, what would happen to the english language if words like 'lol' and 'omg' became real terms? disaster, thats what.
