Noob= not a short word for newbie. A noob is not someone who is new to something. This is the most misunderstood geek term in geekdom. Noobs are people who can be a Vet on whatever, but are very dumb. They act as if they know everything in some field, politics or gaming, but never take the time to learn. Keep in mind that a noob is lower than a Newbie. Love newbies and hate noobs.
Newbie= a person is new at something. They are green. They are usually fresh face people who are open to anything. They are willing to learn. Most people should treat newbies with respect. We were all newbies at one point.
1337= leekspeak meaning “elite” talk. A High form of Nerd and Geek. I don’t get it and never will.
Gusher= a fan of something, so much of a fan in fact, they can never find flaws in that thing they are fans of. These fans will never admit that something is ever wrong with a show, game or leader. They will defend that thing to the death. NOTE these are hardcore fans, not all fans of that fandom.
Basher= People who are on the opposite side of the hardcore fan fence. These are fans of the Old Guard and hate the new product. They will watch and play the very things that really hate the most. Example: Older Trekkers will watch a Star Trek show that they hate with passion, and they will never find a single episode enjoyable. These people will never find middle ground on anything. Just like a Gusher.
Semaj= A strange fellow that goes by the name of James. He likes to write Geek terms on his blog. Avoid this Geek at all cost. Some say he only comes out at night…
