    I've joined quite some forums, and it seems like
    the most of them are full of so called 'n00bs'.
    (I don't know where the term came from, but I've
    seen it on sites as: http://www.sticksuicide.com )
    people that are ignorant to the forum rules,
    have a missing Caps-lock key, or use too much smiley's.

    Well, haven't seem them here...yet.
    Keep the good work up!

    P.S Aren't the moderators a bit bored? :classic:

    Naaah

    The term came from online video games (I think), where new players would come on and annoy everyone with their stupid questions. Instead of READING THE INSTRUCTIONS like everyone else, they decided to jump in and be annoying. Hence the irritation felt toward them, hence the derogatory name.

    newbie has been a term for a while... just another name for newbie. Then came the noob (sounds an awful lot like newbie) then from that n00b.

    RTFM is still one of my favorite terms ever

    Wasn't RTFM something hackers use a lot?

    No. RTFM is a term that was coined from technician's experiences with idiots who decide to jump into things without reading the manual first.
