Vote now for your top net neologism

Asshats, f*cktards and lusers - your time has come

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Reader poll Ok, let's get straight down to it - below are the twenty contenders vying for the crown of El Reg top net neologism, as chosen by you, our beloved commentards readers.

But before we get down and dirty with the vocab, a couple of points. Firstly, we had a lot of support for "wibble", although most reckon that's a Blackadderism. Secondly, I got (quite) a few emails decrying the most offensive web newbies - despite my warning. All those responsible, and you know who you are, are banned from The Register for a month.

And thirdly, the same punishment applies to anyone posting a comment to this poll which begins "I can't believe you didn't include..."

Right, get voting:

Asshat Borked
Celebutard Chesticles
Commentard FAIL
Fanboy Freetard
Fucktard iTard
Luser Meh
MILF Pwned
Troll Turdspurt
Twatdangle Twat-O-Tron
Wikifiddler w00t
