    What Is A Noob

  • 8 years ago

    Often incorrectly used in place of "newbie", a noob is someone who is not only inexperienced with - or lacks knowledge about - a given subject, but also steadfastly refuses to learn from those with more experience and knowledge. A newbie is simply ignorant, a noob is a PITA.

    Usage: That noob has been been posting in all caps for 2 months and still wonders why nobody answers his questions.


    An idiot who thinks they know everything about something and usually complain that more experienced people don't know anything. The term is usually found in games, and most people get it confused with "newbie" or "newb". Noob and newbie DO NOT mean the same thing. Also, a noob is not a QQ.

    Usage: Dude, if you keep running too far away from me I can't heal you. Stop being a noob and stay closer to me!

    I think they mean the biblical definition "Marriage is a contract by which a man sells his daughter to another man" People who want to "stick to the definition of marriage" are people who do not realize that as a society we do not live our lives in accordance to the dictionary. Rather, the dictionary changes to suit how we use the language in our lives. If you don't want to change "Marriage" then I guess you can't use any of the words that have been added to the dictionary since the one you're using to define marriage. So much for using "internet" "google" "woot" "computer" "plasma" etc etc etc.
