One of the latest derogatory variations of the word "Newbie
" as it applies to the online gaming comunity. Originally the word was split into two forms Newbie
for someone just learning the ropes, but who looks to be a promising member of the community, and n00bie
), who is willfully ignorant, disrespectful, and greatly looked down upon by the other players. Somehow "newb
" and "n00b
" got twisted into "newf
" and "n00f
", respectively, keeping their respective meanings mostly intact. The newer and older terms are both currently in use.
