pwned - to 'own' someone in a thread, out-smarting another poster. The P in place of the O is suppose to be funny, because so many people make typos with P's and O's.

yeah I know, but to pwn in real life doesn't realy make sense seeing as it came from l33t speak and is based around a typo, that picture is not pwnge in my opinion. Talking about it online turns it into pwnge, in everyday life who really says pwn?

Out smart maybe not the best description... but to get the better of someone is what I meant...

slang enters mainstream language and some even is accepted and entered into dictionarys.

the origins of where slang words come from are far and wide. The fact that PWNED originated on the internet does not confine it to the internet.. so if people want to use it in real life then they are entitled to.

your post wasn't worth the response as it is obvious.. hence why i simply conveyed my reaction to it.

didn't know it was a slang thing, thought it was more of a HUKD thing as i've only seen it here - hence i didn't google it.

wasn't including scrumpypaul in wish post.

lets call a truce.

i'm gracefully bowing out of this thread now.
