In reference to your profile intro" what does "pwn" mean? Pawn? Practically own? It's such a bizarre antiword that it really appears to have no meaning whatsoever. Using actual language, of whatever recognized/recognizable origin, is much more effective for communication with human beings.

dear anon,

"pwn" is pretty well defined here:

but if you don't want to go there, basically it boils down to this: "a leetspeak slang term derived from the verb 'own.'"

while I understand and completely approve of your penchant for well thought out uses of standard English, I would not go so far as to argue that a pidgin of English (i.e. leetspeak) is not, to some degree, unrecognizable (I mean, my grandma says LOL all the time, and that's a leetspeak term). At the very least I'd say it is not an "antiword," or, as I'm assuming what you meant by that, a word without meaning.

Concurrently, I'd like to point out that "antiword" is not a word, so by attempting to encourage me to use "actual language," when I am merely using a slang word, by using a word whose only meaning has to be assumed (which I have done, for your sake and mine), you have completely defeated your own purpose.

That, my friendly Anon, is what it's like to be "pwned."
