Officially the NUMBER 1 place to go to for:

- Anime style pictures which have had their contrast levels raped to the extreme on photoshop.
- Pictures of brightly coloured cartoon dogs with what appears to be emo fringes and bling.
- Bad black and white photos of nude females.
- And of course an endless torrent of Sonic, The Lion King and Final Fantasy fanart.

The Last place to go for:
-Artwork

An adjective used to brand something, such as an item, object, activity, TV show, even a moral choice etc, that would stereotypically appeal to a chav
e.g: Burberry, Bling, casual sex and associated low morals, Little Britain the list goes on.

The word is pretty much always used in a negative sense by non-chavs, as to them the thing in question is undesirable.
Guy 1: These trainers are cool.
Guy 2: Nike? It's a bit chavvy isn't it?
Guy 1: Oh yeah, suppose so *puts down trainer in disgust*

Someone who is purposefully posting on a forum/messageboard/site sith the sole aim to irritate the regular members.

Contrary to popular belief there is much more to internet trolling than posting "OMG UR ALL SO GHEYYYY!!!1" "OMFG TRIVIUM SUX ASS U FAGS LOL" and the like. People who post such things will usually be one-post wonders and get banned, however the more experienced troll will attempt to cause some sort of havoc under the admins radar.

Common examples of trolling:
The long-term troll:
These guys don't mind waiting around for the fun to begin. They may pretend to be an average n00b, and give themselves the stereotyical interest(s) of the average member of said forum, then once having a few posts they will gradually try to spread dissent. This type may even pretend to be pally to the admin and get their msn (and try to crack their account password of course) whilst causing general disruption. May act under other proxies and slate these fake trolls on msn to the aforementioned gullible admin. These people, to be frank, usually have no life and love bringing message boards to their knees by putting considerable time into their carnage. If they crack the admins password the board is doomed.

The sophisticated troll:
This type will usually have some sort of distaste for whatever the said message board is discussing and try to cause annoyance as opposed to destructiveness. They will parody the members and see how much they can get over their heads. Subtle pisstaking being their route. They'll usually get banned in the end but will annoy an entire community using this drawn out approach.

The faker troll:
A clever troll, the main aim of the game is to, ironically, act really REALLY stupid, this trolls aim is to argue with members incoherantly, usually using text speak. This is a ploy, the troll only needs to spend 10 seconds writing the babble when the member wastes 10 minutes writing a much more wordy reply. The troll will reply with a stupid rebuff making the member post as many long replies as possible. Using the members weight against them and wasting their forum time... If they are good then their act will be believable and they probably won't get banned unless the admin is strict on txt tlk.

The rank and file spammer:
These are the first to pop into peoples minds, they are similar to the examples stated in the first paragraph. No previous experience necessary, this lot will swarm in, again, usually under proxies to maximise the destructiveness, and spam the place to hell. Only causes mild irritation if not in large numbers.

Join any popular forum for a year and I guarantee you'll see all of these.
(let's assume it's a metal board)

Faker troll (expecting to cause irritation):
"Hi im nu here u all seem kl i am rly metal rawrrr i leik slipnot and fall out boys!!!1 they r so metal! see u al on da forum xxx"

Rank and File spammer:
"LOOOOL U METAL PPL R SO GHEY WITH UR SHOUTY MUSIC WRIST SLITTING ANIMAL FUCKING SATAN SHIIIT"

Ok, an attempt at a balanced definition. I am NOT a furry but both sides hear me out before reaching for that thumbs down.

Furries are a relatively recent phenomenon which has been catapulted into near-mainstreamness almost solely because of the internet. It is obvious furries are very much victims of tarring the majority with the brush of an "unappealing" minority.

In the simplest sense furries are fans of anthropromorphic animals. That is, animals with human like features or tendencies (Fox McCloud, Sonic the Hedgehog... etc) pretty much all furries will create their own character or "fursona" for use as an art model and roleplaying, the designs of which vary wildly dependant on the artists skill and eye for contrasting colours (You get both amazing and appalling furry artists, and a wide skill range between these two) some furries can work wonders when it comes to creating a character on second life

The above paragraph is an apt description of your standard "furry", however there is a small but VERY vocal minority of the "yiff yiff" kind of division. Even though this sort of furry probably only takes up 1/10th of the fandom this is by FAR the type you hear about most often from anti-furry biased sources.

Furry porn is dangerously close to bestiality. Sorry to anyone who likes it, but it is... However the ones who like it seem to be in a minority, with the ones liking the odd fetishes like "vore" and "macro" a very small minority indeed.

Furries get a lot of crap thrown at them on the internet in relation to the activities of the minority of their fanbase. They have a reputation to reacting to this in an over the top manner (such as comparing their treatment to the Holocaust), which realy doesn't do them many favours.

However on the whole they are just a group of people who are fans of a single concept, seem to know how to have fun, and are doing alright for themselves in terms of publicity.

A form of music which has been taking a real battering for years now.

The main problem is, because of magazines and the APPALLING "Metal" sections in CD shops the first bands which pop into your average persons head when they thnk of metal actually AREN'T metal. This is made even worse by teenagers running around with poppy albums (i.e System of a downs latest two) and calling themselves metalheads, kids who would probably cry and cower after hearing a few minutes of Exhorders 'Slaughter in the Vatican'

I can think of 100's of bands misthought of as metal, from the false inclusion of hard rock legends like G n R as metal, right upto this new "Metalcore" fad, which is, when you step back, as close to metal as Britney Spears. And the problem is newcomers to the genre are put off by this crap which is pretending to be metal.

NOW, actual metal is propped up by a relatively tiny and extremely dedicated fanbase, with help from more casual listeners who may latch onto one of the sub-genres, such as Doom Metal. These people may not stand out as metalheads at all, but are infinitely more attuned to metal than the kid with the Trivium T-shirt, who goes on about how "metal" he is.
Commonly mistaken for metal:
- All Metalcore bands (granted there's some quite good stuff in there if you look beyong inane rubbish like BFMV, but it just isn't metal)
- Nu-Metal
- Hard rock bands: i.e Guns n Roses - Again, some good bands in there, but not metal.
- Glam metal, like Nu I reckon they only chose the name "metal" as it sounds better than "glam rock". Pretty much no connection whatsoever to actual metal.

Best of REAL metal (in my opinion):
Summoning, Artillery, Intruder, Testament, Wolfchant, Emperor, Fjoergyn, Death, Savatage, Coroner, Gamma Ray

Quite literally a merge between a trendy and a geek.

Rarer than the trendy, the trendy-geek is usually identifiable by having slightly geeky attire and usually glasses, yet hangs around primarily with trendies.

Most likely to be found sipping a Guinness and playing pool in a trendy club with pinpoint accuracy.

Unfortunately like the trendy, the whole geeky facade is pretty much that, a facade. You could almost say they are a poser geek. And they will have activities like a "Warcraft" account, counter strike, watching Red Dwarf, maybe even LARP, in a desire to look original. Yet they'll also like the typical trendy interests too, like "celebs", and football and One night stands etc...

Clothing is usually strictly trendy, usually the only thing that separates a trendy-geek is usually small things like less "cool" hair and glasses. Or most likely, an aversion to being as rowdy as their trendy peers.

They may also say they like metal in a craving to be "Individual", but by that they mean they've listened to poser-metal like Bullet For My Valentines most popular song.
Guy 1: WTF that trendy looks like a geek, and he was just talking about computers instead of weight training.

Trendy-Geek: Oh my god, I'm like so geeky!1 I have a WoW account and I watch geeky things like Dr. Who!!1 And I've played the most mainstream Final Fantasy all the way through!1
Trendy: Shall we go clubbin'?
Trendy-Geek: Yeah, "sick" mate! (I can go and attention seek by pretending to be really geeky, which is what I do every friggin' day!)

Very formulaic and repetative mainstream animated comedy. Other than a few jokes that could be cast-offs from the NEWER series of The Simpsons, half the humour starts with words such as "remember the time when..." which lead into some "humorous" random flashback sequence, the other half being visual references to pop culture past and present that you can see coming from a mile off... Loses it's freshness well within the 3 episode mark.

Also manages to spawn annoying catch phrases that trendies and wannabe liberal hipsters like to repeat.

The fans are usually irritating too.
Kid 1: family guy iz so awesum!1
Kid 2: No, go and watch some Blackadder, Red Dwarf, or if you realy need animated comedy, South Park. At least they don't resort to 1937284562 "remember the time when..." jokes
