    how about DPS LFG.......  everyone in an mmo no matter what class has dps. shouldnt we be saying DD for damage dealer or nuker, something has to be better.

    second least favorite is when people say "PST me"  horrible use of the english language.

     Gosh I thought he made people want to do that in general, wasnt aware it was just the word EPIC causing it ....

    There is no God, there is no Devil, nor Angels and Demons, there is only us, surely thats bad enough, for no creature is able to commit such acts of hate and love, sometimes in the same day.

    "rouge" and "rediculous". Mostly because they are misspelled, but also because I can't tell if someone is misspelling the words on purpose or not. Rather than using the words with any sort of context, they are just being used instead of "rogue" and "ridiculous".

    I think "real" takes the crown though. As in "real sandbox" or "real mmo".

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

    What if you pronounce it "high per bowl"?

    "gay" as an insult or negative meaning.

     

    Also, "lol" in every other sentence.

     

    Then there is the "LF DPS" or "i am DPS".... "I am a Tank/Healer/Hybrid/Support" is fine, since they are actual descriptions of roles. DPS is not a role description. Spell it out "I am a Damage Per Second"... BLARHG?! If "Damage Dealer" is to long, use "DD".

    I think that last one is a bit stupid... DD means "Direct Damage" already, in MMO's. It does not mean "Damage Dealer." DPS, as that is the role of the individual (as opposed to healing or tanking) is the only appropriate short hand thing to say.

    Honestly, I can't decide if "lag" or "mob" bothers me more.

     

    Is there some gross misuse of mob?  I've seen it as a shortened form of mobile or monster object.  Not really sure the origin other than I think it's from MUDs.

    Troll/trolling.

     

    I am SO tired of cheap and mindless critique. IF someone is a Troll you ignore. People simply over-use the phrase to the point where it became meaningless and mostly sheds a bad light on the accusator, rather.

    I know a lot of people who say grats in real life. It happens quite often at work lol. Although we are an office full of software developers so everyone is kind of a gamer.

    Would congrats be better? Or still too short?

    Easily number one word that should be banned from the gamer lexicon is "WoW-Clone".  If I hear another game called a WoW-Clone  I might just lose it lol.

    Troll, seems like people use this word today when there is a thread they do not agree with, seems like allot of folks just don't know what the term troll really means.

     

    In Internet slang, a troll (pron.: /?tro?l/, /?tr?l/) is someone who posts inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[3] The noun troll may also refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted."
