Besides the "you're a noob if you have to ask what a noob is" comments I'm sure to get, what is your definition of a noob? I've seen it on her time and time again used in different contexts. So what is a noob to you? Here's what Wikipedia says ... Newbie or Noob is a slang term for a novice or newcomer, or somebody inexperienced in any profession or activity. Contemporary use can particularly refer to a beginner or new user of computers, often concerning Internet activity, such as online gaming. It can have derogatory connotations, but is also often used for descriptive purposes only, without a value judgment.
