This is the first time I've ever seen the 'word'. I guess we must hang out in different places on-line.

The least favorite word on the internet for me is when I see this:

I read it alot on video game forums. It always goes something like this....

guy 1- I think the PS3 will be so powerful and have the best graphics due to processing power.

guy2 - Youre stupid. You are just a Sony fanboy. The X Box 360 pnewns the PS3. Now go cry to your mommy little boy.

guy 1 - PS3 kills X Box. Go cry to your mom when the PS3 outsells X Box.


Stuff like that.
