Like the cracker usage of own, only more so. Can be used as an verb, adjective, or possibly even a noun (although pwnage is more suited to use as a noun).

Pronunciations vary; "pone" is favored at the forums although I personally prefer something like "pwun" or "pw'n" (preserving the "w" sound).

A gay-ass gamer-fag word derived from Own for the soul purpose of showing just how much he or she sucks at life.
Yo i'll Pwn u on Diablo 2 because in real life you'd tapdance on my face.

To exceed owning; to go beyond the realm of any regular insult spree. To completely outwit and outdo your adversary in verbal combat.
