That n00b is behaving like a bloody git.
Total and utter tosser who is incapable of doing anything other than annoying people, and not in a way that is funny to others. Best used idly. e.g. "Git."
"You useless git."
Also: "Some total git has made it so that this example must have over 20 letters, hence this little add on."
By definition it's a "rotter" or a despicable person. In reality in English it's a colloquialism that affords itself to a more a luckier fellow. Much like a 'bugger' whilst the roots of the word are offensive, the actual use is endearing. A lucky 'git', a wealthy 'git' and a sodding 'git'... when used right is still a mate. A friend.
It's more positive these days.
The origins are from the word 'geat' which were a Scandinavian people living in Götaland, land of the Geats, currently within the borders of modern Sweden. The name of the Geats lives on in the Swedish counties of Västergötland and Östergötland, the Western and Eastern lands of the Geats, as well as in many toponyms.
Shut yer face you lucky git.

From the english dialect "Git" or "Get" meaning "Gate". When using foundry sand to cast iron objects the access point for the metal, that is the funnel shape that lets the molten iron into the sand-mould was called the gate. This gate was of no use and would have to be removed from the final item and the item carefully finished to remove any blemishes caused by the gate. Thus the term "Useless gate (git)" was coined.
