Not to be confused with the casual Kazaa user, the regular IRC downloader, or the CD sharing home user, warez d00dz are part of the darkest internet subculture, alongside beasiality porn, virus d00dz
, and hotornot.com. Warez d00dz usually copy the warez from their own software, breaking copy protection if need be. Warez d00dz could be found on the web (http) until the internet stock crash, after which they couldn't find any decent hosting places and took most of their work to IRC or pr0n
Warez d00dz are best used and abused. Without them we would have trouble finding antiquated abandonware and obscure modern software titles, and even Kazaa needs it's sources -- most of which are on IRC. Their egos rest on how much illegal software they've accumulated and shared for all to see, so download a few files and keep the heads big, but -- heaven forbid -- don't become one!
Hang out in the related chatrooms but are not the same:
- Like hackers, but they write virii. Use names such as "D00M666".
- Functionally the same as a virus d00d, but lacks the technical skillz (i.e. programming). Writes in alternating caps or 1337 speak. Grows mushrooms in his desk drawers and deals hard to find substances like peyote. Use names such as "ShRoOmZ".
- The AOL equivalent of the hacker community. Use names such as "linux".
- jeff k
- A typing dialect of the script kiddie community. Numbers are usually substituted for letters. Use names such as "Cyph0rk".
