I mean, I know how to use it in the proper context, and I get the jist of it, but is it an acronym? Where did the word come from? How exactly do you pronounce it?

deviation of owned... it's really big amongst the computer geek culture. 99% of people use it tongue-in-cheek.

there are a few theories as to how it originated but it's really just a misspelling of "owned"

pretty gay? yeah, i know.

that's how the net homos spell "owned"

it's overused and pretty lame, but they think it makes them cooler

I figured it was just a typo of owned that has a funny phonetic mix with it.

It came from starcraft and warcraft, it means getting you troops absolutely massacred in front of your eyes. The victor, proud of his victory will usually boast ownership of the defeated by claiming, "owned". But in the fury of adrenaline induced nerves, it always comes out misspelled so that "owned" had many different designations, such as pwned, owndered, pwnd...etc

oohhhh!!!! I see! So there really isn't a real way to pronounce it...

I always thought it sounded kinda cool LOL but didn't feel comfortable using it when I didn't really know what it meant. Now that I know, I don't think I'll ever use it!

I like the (st/w)arcraft connection! I always figured that it was like frat/dorm lingo...

1. pwned

A corruption of the word "Owned." This originated in an online game called Warcraft, where a map designer misspelled "owned." When the computer beat a player, it was supposed to say, so-and-so "has been owned."

Instead, it said, so-and-so "has been pwned."

It basically means "to own" or to be dominated by an opponent or situation, especially by some god-like or computer-like force.
"Man, I rock at my job, but I still got a bad evaluation. I was pwned."

OR

"That team totally pwned us."

i made the exact same topic a while ago and i remember some people saying you're not supposed to pronounce or even say it...? just for typing? WTF either way that word gives me a fucking headache.
