Just thought I'd leave that there.
Y'know, I just can't believe the OED would actually include the leetspeak spelling of "newbie" as a discrete entry. That's absolute fucking bullshit. It's enough to make the Baby Noam Chomsky cry.
That's because Sasha Baron Cohen trolls IRL.

When will "pwn" get its own entry?
when "pwn" finds the door!
Pwn isn't a word. It's what happens to "own" when you're trying to mock someone while playing an online game with greasy potato chip fingers, i.e. "lol i jus pwned u n00b." To own someone, in videogame parlance, means to completely dominate them to the point that they are a thing in your possession.
My point was that neologisms shouldn't be drawn from mistyped hacker slang. N00b does not have a distinct meaning separate from "newbie." It's just leetspeak.
