I am so sick of hearing the word "noob." I'ts been overused to death! It's also used in the most ridiculas of ways. For example, I simply posted a question on a gaming forum, in the "help section," and I was actually called a noob for asking for help... Did I mention this was in the help section?
People use the word in a rude fashion and it's used in a way that is meant to degrade other players, and as dumb as this may sound to people, in the end, it's just plain mean.
Think about new players trying to get into a game who have never even played an mmo and they are welcomed into a game by being called names and verbally insulted? I don't about anyone else, but when I was playing my first mmo and was called a noob it stung. Does that mean I'm extra emotional for getting worked up over a stranger's words? I don't think so. I think it's just a natural response to be somewhat hurt when you're called names, even if it is from a stranger on an online game.
It doesn't really affect me now when I'm called names on online games because I'm so used to it that I just ignore it and list the people who spout such foolishness as trolls. This is my question though, why should anyone have to force themselves to ignore such stupidness? It shouldn't even exsist.
I know though in the end words such as "noob," will never go away because there will always be stupid people playing games, and I sometimes wonder if some of these people play online games just to make themselves feel better by trashing on other people.
