Basicly a Lamer is a coward, a camper, a troll, a cheater, anything that spoils the online gaming experience of others.
In an online shooter a lamer would hide and "frag" bypasser neglecting he has other goals to do, in team based games a Lamer will stick to the winning team even if its clear that changing would make the game more fun for everyone.
A lamer would be a wanna-be hacker with absolutely no coding/cracking skills at all.
Also, it was used as an insult between rival pirate groups.
