It's closer to acceptable than unacceptable. ;)

Someone who cannot type and hit a "n" instead of a "b." ;-)

Still demanding :)

I really dislike it when peole pronounce it "Noob" like the word tube.

It irritates me. A lot.

But I'm also the person who has said 'lol' out loud.

I don't EVER say the word n00b, it is only typed.

Saying LOL is also fail. :)

It was a sign I was on the computer too much in high school, haha. I was 16 and we were all laughing and I accidently said 'lol'. It got quiet real quick.

But I am the master of epic fails.

n00b..reminds me of my mIRC days.

thank you DC for shedding some light on the same.

Raptor464 12-09-2009 09:28 AM
