An insult coined by Miami lawyer and anti-videogame crusader Jack Thompson to describe gamers who fought back against his attempts to ban violent games. While intended as an ad hominem

Believed to be a portmanteau
derived from "pixel", a reference to videogame graphics, and "vigilante
Glad to be of service in annoying the pixelante pukes.
