Originally a acronym standing for Scum Of The Earth, sote has become a popular term amongst twenty-somethings in Massachusetts, from Pittsfield to Boston. Coined in 1990 by yours truly, the term sote has evolved from meaning a comic bookstore loving trench coat wearer into a all-encompassing ambiguous catchphrase that is not always used in a negative connotation.
Sote, sotey, and sotiness are all commonly used to voice displeasure about someone or something.
Someone who is 30 yet still lives at home is a sote. You go to the package store at 10:58 and it's closed...that is sotey. A fantasy baseball league full of veto-crazy owners would have a high level of sotiness.

S.O.T.E. = Scum of the earth, a bum, a lowlife, petty criminals, juvenile delinquents

S.O.T.E. was created in the mid 1970's in Astoria, Queens, New York by a group of high school seniors, who harassed unsuspecting "lowlifes" on the street by screaming at them "Scum of the Earth." Many times just driving closely by and scaring them. We also harassed hookers (sorry Viva) and pimps in Times Square shouting this phrase. It was sometimes coupled with "hey, you, YEAH YOU, YOU FAT F**K". It's amazing we weren't shot at given the times, although we were chased several times.

We referred to the practiced as "scumming"
