    Default Noob?
    Hey everyone, this question has been bugging me and my friend for ages now, we both know what is a NOOB. We both know it means a newbie BUT, what does NOOB stand for?

    lol

    It doesn't stand for anything but incompetence or stupidity in a certain technological field. It's the derogatory term for a newbie. Like n*gger is for for a black person, etc.

    variations: n00b, nub naab, nab, nooblet, noobskin, noobling, noobling prime, nabbins, and lots more.

    Doesn't stand for anything... It's just an easier or cooler way of saying newbie... Like saying hawt for hot. Or mi for my, its not really abbreviating, just people find it easier or a better way of saying it...
    That's how I see it at least...

    Now that sounds logical... kinda anywayz. The newbie to noobie is a bit stretched though.

    a noob is a newbie, a n00b as I like to type it out as.

    lol Had to add my 17 cents to it, since everyone else did.

    Here's a definition: a n00b is one who asks what a n00b is
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

    Fair play... so no one actually knows where noob came from. lol.

    The real reason why I asked is I found it funny to call someone a noob as it sounds like you are called them a d*ck and some people might find it offensive.
