    WTF is with people posting "This" and that's all when quoting someone else's post?
    Obviously some retarded gen Y rubbish.
    "This"....yeah, what about it?
    It's almost as bad as people speaking as if they're typing a text message LOL, OMG etc.

    More or less means "I agree" or "this is exactly right"

      I think that is why like buttons were invented, but then using a like button doesn't add to your post count.

      Pwned is another way of saying "owned".

      History has its origin as one drunk night someone was trying to say 'owned' but accidentally typed pwned as the p is near the o.

      Then the internet took over.

      tadah!

      edit: lol@wolfpack.

      :)

        Guilty as charged. Simply an economical way to say you agree with a particular comment or quote. I do this when I don't have access to the like button while using my iPhone.

        Cheers guys.

        I think i'll stick to spelling "owned" in the traditional manner. Smacks of a fad to me.
