    Used to pronounce it as pawned.
    I say pawned, but my friend who watches too much 'Pure pwnage' says you say it the same way you say 'ownage'.

    I don't know why but "i" and "u" annoy me more than they should... especially "i". I don't tend to mention it because it seems a little pedantic and everybody does it.

    Oh if anyone cares, my favourite words are: "Quixotic", "Inveigle", "One-Upmanship", "Verily", "Obfuscate" and finally "hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia" which can be spelt with six Ps if you're so inclined.

    If anybody wants to know what the words mean I'll be happy to tell them

    AGREE.

    This has annoyed me ever since I got the internet, because I'm prehistoric, I was about the age of 12. So many people don't capitalise their I's (if that's what you're talking about) and that lonely little dot annoys me, banish it, banish that dot.
    I love you, Adam.

    Pwned can be pronounced the same was as owned but it makes a lot more sense to say powned, like I do.

    Running onto my scouse dialect, I hate most of the words that we come up with:

    The best - When something is good someone will say "That's the beast" and it just wrecks head when I hear it.

    Bommie - Meaning bonfire. Similarily, I hate the phrase 'Bommy Night' too.

    Bifta - Cigarette. Ack, my friends always say that.

    Trabs - Trainies/ Trainers/ whatever.

    Kidda - I would NEVER refer to my friend as kidda.

    Bizzies - The police. Just wrong.

    Things I do say:

    My mind needs refreshing off Wikipedia for these... Right, these annoy a lot of people, but they just come to me:

    Antwakky - Tacky/ Bad taste
    Arlarse - Mean
    Bail - To run away. Also known as 'leg it' or 'peg it' =P
    Biddie - Old woman, got that from my nan and my mum >_<;
    Bill - On your own, also 'billy tod' or 'on your bill'
    Boss - Commonly used for something good...
    Butty - Sandwich, agh, it annoys me when people say sandwich.
    Cackhanded - Left handed, sorry, I use it >.>;
    Chewy - Gum
    Class - Really good...
    Cob on - When someone's in a mood.
    Dead - Subsititues very
    Divvy - Idiot, I always wondered where that word came from.
    Done in - If something's broken
    Geg - Someone who butts in.
    Get - Idiot
    Gob - Mouth >.>;
    Go 'ed - Go on then
    Kecks - trousers
    'leccy - Electricity
    Made up - Happy
    Trainies
    Youse - Made up plural of you.

    If you talk to us I'm sure you'd be lost in translation.
    And I thought leetspeak was gibberish...



    I never add friend codes.
