Noob Alert

Given our penchant for supporting the online participation of enterprising young citizens, I thought I'd share this unique site with you all: http://www.purepwnage.com/index.html

If you do watch some of the clips I highly recommend you go in chronological order... It will probably make most sense to obsessive gamers, but even 'noobs' (innocent and inept new gamers) can appreciate the humour. Good stuff.

ok, reading the site homepage made me wana, well, punch something!!!
how frustrating!
do you know that a lot of online communities now ban people from using leetspeak because it has become too annoying?
so many people do the whole 'teh' thing...

Hmm yes... have to agree, it all takes me a few minutes to work out what's going on. Try this wiki-ish site:
http://www.urbandictionary.com/
for some slang info.
