A good roleplayer. Specifically, a literate roleplayer does not use chatspeak, spells word correctly, and has proper usage and grammar. Literates are less likely to be desperates or n00bs and generally roleplays well.
If you see a thread with "LITERATE ROLEPLAY/LITERATES ONLY" in the subject line, it means they only accept people who have good grammar.
1. The literacy rate is 97% in America, meaning 97% of Americans can read and write.

The belief in the Law of "Specifics"
Basically it is like Murphy's law: If it can go wrong, it will.
Specifically because you want this to happen, the God of specifics will make the complete opposite to happen.
You are waiting for your bus which is never late. Never has been. But this time you left your wallet back at the house, you decide to get it and when you do, you find you have 6 minutes till the bus comes. As you walk back to the bus stop you see your bus leaving.

It is a term that refers to the receiver of the description is a very reclusive, sociopathic person who has a severe addiction to any form of media and (in some cases) will rarely, if ever, leave his or her house to meet minimal living requirements or obtain more of said media (hence the term otaku derived from its original meaning refering to a house)(3).
