PWNed is a misspelling of the word owned. The P is right next to the O key, so that's most likely how it came about. Before it's popularity, I am pretty sure we all used it.

It is common knowledge it originated in warcraft; you'll see a lot of those here, so I wont bore you by repeating it. However, it also applies to when people get lots of thumbs down for their bullshit definitions of "pwned"
As above:

A corrupted version of the word "owned", this..."word"...has been plagueing internet space since the day some nerd accidently hit the "P" key instead of the "o" to display owned. its definition is unknown, as only the retarded can say it, but it is believed to mean "I have no place in Internet gaming".
