I know this is a pointless complaint, but I'll try anyway.

I'm tired of these n00bs on the Half-Life 2: Episode 2 Forums. They're either asking for help in a certain chapter that they could probabally find by Google or some other search engine, or else they have a computer problem and they type like this:

AnonymousMan Please Help Me........im Stuck At The Chapter 7...where The Scientist Thanks You And U Go On To The Elevator...there Alyx Just Stands There Stupid...what Should I Do....please Help Peoplke ..pllllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaasssssssssseeeee

I just looked today and I am already tired of it. I know, we can't get them in trouble for being n00bs, but maybe teach them some English so they don't type like the quote above...

Tru, but then you calling everyone who asked for a question to be answered is more than just rude. You, essentially, dismiss the entire purpose of a forum. This place exists for people to ask questions and for those n00bs you talk of to ask their question and get answers. Just becaause you have three pubes does not mean you are more important than someone who asks how to get past level 7. If you dislike it that much, do as you're told and fuck off. This place will carry on without you ---- and be better for your absense.

Without 'noobs' there is no questions, no answers, no community.

So... kindly go fuck yourself. :) Your attitude sucks donkey dick and I'd rather have 10 nubs than one egotistical knowitall fucktard like you.

Yeah, that was rude. So was your first post.

I was kind of rude, thank you, kind sir. However I hate when you get a n00b that can't even type english and they type like in the post a quoted above.

Well...what a waste. I think I'll stop ranting on forums. MODERATOR! Destroy this thread...or lock it...if that's all you can do...

Even though I generally refuse to acknowledge leetspeek as a language, I should point out that "n00b" is a derogatory term.

A "n00b" is someone who lacks knowledge and experience, yet still acts as if they're "the shit", the master who is superior to everyone else. Basically, a moronic asshole.

Someone who is merely inexperienced, will admit it, and asks for help when they need it, is a "newbie", or "newb". Those kinds of people, are generally okay, and it's wise to watch their backs and help them out because they'll develop into the kind of people who will positively benefit the community at large.

The two words may be rather similar, but as far as what they mean.... yeah, cats and dogs, buddy.

:don:


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

So...use "00" if they are an asshole and "ew" if they just are new to doing stuff. Thanks for the tip!
