Default OK, got some learnin' to do here...

Maybe I am just old, it's getting late, I have had a beer or three, but maybe someone can clue me in on a couple of things. There are some things that I don't understand.

What does "FTW" mean?

Why do people type "owned" as "pwned"?

Yes, I'll read through all of the crap I'm going to catch on this, just in case someone actually answers these questions.

Oh, yeah, can someone post that "oral/----" smilie that I have seen a time or two? I can't find it and forgot to save it.

Thanks for your assistance on this most important matter.

My last name is Leete, and you guys have no idea how much **** I get over it. Everyone just assumes I'm trying to be cool or something with my username.

Then again, everything I type is leetspeek!

if your parents had a sense of humor they would have named you Eric, or Evan, or Eddie. Then you could catch more **** on these forums



pwned - A corruption of the word "Owned." This originated in an online game called Warcraft, where a map designer misspelled "owned." When the computer beat a player, it was supposed to say, so-and-so "has been owned."

Instead, it said, so-and-so "has been pwned."

It basically means "to own" or to be dominated by an opponent or situation, especially by some god-like or computer-like force.

"Man, I rock at my job, but I still got a bad evaluation. I was pwned."

Pwned has been around as long as there has been text based communication in Player vs. Player online gaming. Saw it all the time in EverQuest at least 8 years ago. It's been my personalized plate for 4 years.
