Hackers, like myself, enjoy the challenge of overcoming limits placed upon them. Hackers are proud of what they do and want it to be associated with their real names rater than being childish and hiding behing screen names. The point of hacking is that you must have a reason for doing it rather than just mindlessly destroying things.
Hackers do not use hacking tools made by someone else without a full understanding of waht the program does anyone who does this is known as a script kiddie.

What people consider themselves just because they know basic computer programs. Using dumb terms like "leet" doesn't make you a hacker
The average hacker probably wouldn't refer to themself as a hacker.

A term given to a player of an online multiplayer game eg: Counter Strike, Halo etc, defining someone who owns everyone and obviously has altered the coding of the game to give them an unfair advantage over everyone else. Usually mistaken for someone who is actually alot better than the people who are playing against him/her and have nothing better to do than brand them a cheater instead of actually playing better at the game

Someone who really, really sucks at golf. Not neccesarily a noob. There are people who have been playing golf for years and are still hackers.
Everyone starts as a hacker but all hackers should stick to cheap hacker courses and not go to good ones because they spoil it for the good players.
See that dude over there with the rental clubs and his visor on backwards?

Yeah, what a freakin' hacker.
