n. A wannabee; not hacker slang, but used among
crackers, phreaks and warez d00dz. Not as negative as lamer or
leech. Probably derives from a similar usage among punk-rockers
and metalheads, putting down those who "talk the talk but don't walk

HoneyImHome said:What Lamp said. My daughter likes Hot Topic because of a few of the things there, but wouldn't go all out with their clothing. She likes some of the t-shirts, and bracelets, jewelry, buttons, etc. People at her school still call her goth. She's NOWHERE near goth (not that I'd have a problem with it). Just because she wears rock t-shirts and her eyeliner, which is brown, shows up very dark because she is naturally pale, very pale actually. It makes her appear gothic but there is nothing she wears that doesn't make her look that way.
She hates it when people call her punk or goth because she hates labels. She hates how now it's "cool" to shop at Hot Topic and no longer wants to for that reason alone. She also tells people she's not a goth and that goths would call her a poser for even trying to say it. Anyway, I'm proud of her because she just wants to be herself and hates the idea of wearing something to look a particular way.
I hang out with the goths, but I feel like you - I wear little black. Now, though, I have started shopping at Hot Topic and wearing more black, just to piss the rednecks around here offKing Goldfish said:I consider myself Gothic, I liked Most Goth bands (Especially from the 80s in its earliest form).
But i look nothing like it. I dont want to conform to a style. I know most do it to express the darkness in their life, But i'de rather wear a polo shirt or a hawiaan shirt today then dress up in black and dye my hair black.
Although I usually dress up in mostly black when I visit some of the older clubs. I havnt visited them in 3 or 4 years though.
