    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    pwned???!!!!

    Is pwned a word? Is it short for something?

    Or are people trying to say owned and accidently press P intead of O??? (they are next to each other)

    At first I thought it was a simple typo but I see it an awful lot, even in subject headings.

    Is it a typo? Am I missing something?

    It's purposeful. The point is that yes, indeed, internet bad-boys sometimes get so excited that they commit typos in their rush to score points on others. This produces highly consistent errors. Like "teh" for the etc.
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    Oh,

    HA HA HA

    I always thought "teh" was for "the"

    So anyway, I gather from what you said that they are deliberately making it look they made a mistake (when they haven't) to make it look they were so excited they couldn't contain themselfs and made typos. Which they didn't always have to make.

    Makes sense to me (sarcasm)

    it well tell all the meanings of meh teh and the rest.

    pwned was apparently a spelling mistake done by an game designer on warcraft. instead of putting "so and so was owned by so and so" he put pwned accidentally(because of the closeness of P and O keys), and so it caught on.
