The only reason campers have a bad name is because of the people who constantly sit in the enmy spawn (aka spawn camping) or next to a weapon/vehicle spawn point to whore dozens of kills with said weapons.
If you've ever played Demolition in CoD, you will often find the defending team camping it up and living the good life while the people who rush start crying and whining about their now negative KDR for the match.
Before you bitch about it being lame, try it out and see how many kills you get.
Random dude form other team: That is the reason you lost.....By the way thanks for the Attack Dogs, Blackbird, and Care Package you let me earn.
15th Prestige douchebag: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!
Camping is a perfectly legitimate strategy, but is criticized by a majority of the online community, usually because players get frustrated by being killed in such a fashion, it slows the game down and is considered an unskilful art. Idiots always resort to insulting a camper, who will most likely have a higher score than them. Incompetent admins sometimes kick them and the camper society becomes one of ridicule and resentment.
It isn’t illegal to position yourself in such a way that you have an advantage, that’s smart thinking and its part of the game. Some people need to grow some balls.

I expect the definition to be voted down, but those of intelligence know who is right.
"I'm guarding the flag, you dumbass. Learn to play."
"You expect a sniper to walk around?"
To avoid being a 'camper', run around like a headless chicken waiting to be shot by an experienced 'clan' gamer.... who will then call you a n00b!
"There is a camper in the corner next to the brown house."
