official definition: a internet acronym, similar to "noob". HOWEVER, whilst a NOOB is someone who is lame/idiotic because he is new, a NUB is someone who has had the opportunity to learn something new, but never did, and is therefore idiotic/stupid.

worse than a n00b. a nub is someone who persistently makes poor decisions. and is in general terms an idiot. only the nub is unaware of their state of nubness, nubs can be easily identified, as nubness is an incurable and obvious affliction.

Acronym for Non Useful Body. A newly reported personel to a navy warship, who is not yet qualified to operate any of the equipment, but is still entitled to food and air priveledges. Due to the large number of single sailors, nub has been used heavily and adopted by online gaming communities to refer to any new, unskilled person.

A really stupid way of saying "noob"
Which a really stupid way of saying "newb"
Which is a really stupid way of saying "newbie"

Used by staggeringly unclever nerds to insult people but end up looking staggeringly retarded. Average age of user: 13-22 (When 99% of users reach 23 they realize how damn stupid they sound and stop speaking with lame, internet affectations)

People can cite the military all they like. Game nerds only use the word, because it is the mouth breathing internet dweller's idea of "clever" to respell shit in stupid ways.
Calling someone "nub" makes you look like a retarded 5 year old. It makes you look far more idiotic then those you mock.

For all the tards out there that use this term loosely, or explain at length how it "originated in online gaming" - whatever.

"Nub" is a Navy submariner term for those who are new to the sub and don't know how to do anything yet (and thus unqualified in submarines)

Thus "nub" means "non-useful body" get it right, or don't use it.
Dude, he didn't know how to do that, he's still a nub.
