2. Someone with little to no netiquet.
3. A complete ****ing idiot who refuses to get the picture they aren't wanted somewhere. Again usually on the internet.

Person-A: Will a mod please ban this LAMER?
Someone or something that is lame, although someone who uses the word 'lamer' would definatly not use the word 'lame'. The person in question is normally a fool, and very very annoying.

Lamer is someone who thinks they are smart, yet are really a loser.
That hacker wannabe is really just a lamer
A person who participates in forums, etc, online seemingly with the sole purpose of getting on people's nerves. Seems to have no clue at all, and will eventually be banned, kicked or otherwise ejected from the area.
May often also be a n00b
Geez, would somebody ban that lamer already?
Phreaker/Hacker who has no real skills, but talks alot.
that fuuulll just got own3d nasty..lets see how long it takes that lamer to find out?
A "Lamer" a person acting lame, one who plays an online game deathmatch style or RPG's to enjoy him/herself disregarding others want to have fun playing that game too.
Basicly a Lamer is a coward, a camper, a troll, a cheater, anything that spoils the online gaming experience of others.
In a mmorgp a lamer would only combat much lower leveled players,
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.
Before the rise of the Internet, it was largely used amongst the Amiga pirate, as well as, the demo-scene community.
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.
Quartex are lamers!
