I think it should be noted that some people feel regardless of the spelling, Pwn is still pronounced the same as "own". - Achetetu (talk) 13:22, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

Some people feel? Those seem like weasel words to me. I am not saying you are wrong, but backing up your statement may be difficult.--SWM2448 17:59, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

I don't understand how what I added is supposedly any less relevant than the rest of this post.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by WCrispy (talk · contr).

Coobra: Perhaps it needs to go in that article instead of having on for itself. it seems pretty redundant to have a page for a game term. Cindrah (talk) 22:52, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

Riiight... perhaps you should have a gander into the game terms category. Also... what article? There is no game terms article. SnakeSssssssssssssssssssssssss Coobra sig3For Pony! (Sssss/Slithered) 22:54, January 22, 2010 (UTC)
There is no relevant information in this article. There's a history lesson (which is irrelevant, not to mention off-topic). The only information in this article is really only the first 2 sentences:

Own (aka pwn) is 1337-speak for dominating another player character or mob. Very few people actually use the term own; it is (essentially) invariably purposely spelled "pwn".

As coobra pointed out, there's a game terms category. "Pwn" currently redirects to here, which seems the proper direction ... AFAIK, the term is usually pronounced 'own', spelled 'pwn'. It is even memorialized in an item. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 00:26, January 23, 2010 (UTC)
