I'm sorry if this has been misplaced, in your ideas, but to me this made the most sense to put under General Gaming because Newbs/n00bs are terms mostly used in gaming.
(I'm also sorry if this has been posted before.)
Most people think that all new people who don't know that much are n00bs who can't spell or use English (or any other language), and are annoying and help with nothing. However, there are two types of newbies/n00bs. Newbies are people who know just about nothing, but are willing to learn . n00bs, however, are people who do nothing to help, don't present much of a desire to learn, and annoy everyone. That is my small exp. of the differences between newbs/n00bs.
Most of you saying "your a n00b" are the n00bs.
