Should the Word "N00b" and all it's other spellings be banned for life?
Yes, it's only used by people whose IQs are lower than my current room temperature anyway.

Intolerance is the way of the world.
You obviously can't end it. Just be against it.
Though it can be an "annoying" word that signifies intolerance, it generally is the truth.

EDIT: Also, those are very poor choices for the poll.

Thats just stupid to ban that word.

Noobs should be called the ppl who are newbies in this game, and theres nothing wrong with it.
But calling other noobs just for what they thought, its just stupid.

If the word noob should be ban then obviously the "expert" should also -.-

personally, I think the term "newb" and "n00b" are two completely different things. Newb, to me, is somebody that is new to the game, and asking legitimate questions that they can't find answers for, while being fairly intelligent about it. n00bs, however, are those who tend to be fairly ignorant and spam boards endlessly with meaningless drivel. I vote, keep.

most of the time those people who use these terms are, themselves, inexperienced players at least to the degree of the people they are addressing. Use the lingo if you want, but I still think that people who use these terms are idiots more so than those who are inexperienced.

A message to thoise who speak these terms: There is no reason to be a prick to someone who is trying to learn. Do you think you are cooler than other people because you spend more time in nerdy chatrooms talking trash in an immature fashon? I think the "noobs" probably got a couple of cool points over you just for having better things to do than make fun of people for their lack of knowledge in a nerdy game such as magic.

You're post in a forum about magic politics. It doesnt get much nerdier than that.

EDT: In case you didnt catch my drift, I was trying to say STFU Newb. Grow a dick etc etc

It is quite an annoying word, and it shows people's intolerence to someone who is new to the game but is willing to learn.
So vote now, and we can end this intolerence!

i think that we should help the newer, younger players become better. magic league helps us become better players, and those who are noobs now will become better players with time.

Or we could stop making idiotic threads that serve no purpose or value. WTF cares about N00b or noob or newb. ITS THE FREAKING INTERNET.


Oh yeah, i forgot that it is encouraged to always be an assho1e while you're online. Way to clarify how we all should be acting zenth. Now that we've cleared up the etiquitte issue, i'm gonna go gaybash in a homosexual chatroom. That's the kind of stuff we cool internet people do. Sad
