    Geeks are more tech-savvy, repulsive, and inclined to living in the basement. Nerds are intellectuals, the people to whom others turn in times of (educational) need.

    Hahaha That's the way to say it!!

    I don't really think people are ashamed of it. They just don't talk about it around people who either don't understand it or don't want to. That dosen't make them ashamed in my point of view, it just makes them selective.

    Re: Are you ashamed of being a Geek?

    muchly not, i still take a shower and i have a lot of fun with my partner in geekdom, so why would i be embarressed?

    ^_^ i think it's more embarrasing acting like a douche at the mall with your loser friends spending your mom's money... but that's just me...


    @ Shodokan: according to my partner and i, a nerd is a geek who's smart in a particularly unpopular subject, such as math or history. something with a lot of inane facts.

    a geek is an otaku, or rabid fan of certain shows or genres.

    example, table top RPGs, you know, those guys that make miniture figures and re-enact battles of fantasy or history...

    the geek is the guy painting the figures to make them "uber awesome lol", but the nerd is the guy totally remaking the story into a masterpiece of sorts...

    so basically, there's a difference if you're nerdy enough to research it...

    Why would I be ashamed of being a geek, thats who I am, and if someone can't accept me for who I am, then they can take it and shove it where the sun don't shine.

    Most of the Greatest minds and leaders of the last 100 years have all been "Geeks" in one form or another, so we should be be proud of ourselves.

    I agree with aceman... you are who you are.. why should you be ashamed of what you want to be... ^^

    if someone can't accept me for who I am, then they can take it and shove it where the sun don't shine.

    Yeah, a lot of people judge others way too quickly, so it's understandable. But, if I got to meet somebody new, wouldn't it be normal to talk about our interests? What's the alternative, lying to them to make myself look better? Embrace your geekness and accept it, as long as you are happy with that lifestyle. Plus, it's not like it's a big deal. I can think of a lot of other things I would be more ashamed of in comparison.
    Attitude of AO MODS, according to beast
    Because they have obtained that level they are arrogant. You have to kep in mind when you talk about these guys they are kind of dorks who probably didn't excel at much and this is their only outlet to flex their muscles. Their egos would suffer no less so the the forum suffers some more. Watch one way or another they will probably repond to this post with a threat. But there are better forums out there.
