POHN.

like phone - the H.

i dunno the history of it but I always thought it was another one of those internet phrases
that arised when someone mispelled "owned".. instead they typed a p since it's next to O.
thats always been my idea of it....

pwnd


In fact, this is exactly what happened. As for where it started, well, it started in a lot of places more or less at the same time. It actually started as soon as people started using the word own as slang meaning "indefinitely dominate". Then as you can imagine, there were typ-o's and it eventually became pwn which is in fact pronounced either "pawn" or "pown". Sorry if it sounds like I'm being a know-it-all.

Rarely, though that is related to the fact that I rarely play on my computer any more. Lost interest you might say.
