    I heard on the news yesterday that 'words' such as "wtf" "omg" "woot" "noob" have been added to Collins.

    I just had a look on the web for the same news and found this page.

    I checked Collins but it didn't return any results :(

    Either way, this is quite bizzare. I can see it now..

    User1: woot you sux noob
    User2: Beg pardon?
    User1: Haha you suck new skiller
    User2: Why not speak English?
    User1: Haha you newb *link*
    User2 *facepalms*

    the list goes on

    noob is also an incorrect spelling, the correct form is n00b in true l33tsp34k
    they always manage to dumb it down i guess!

    I know them all and I'm aware that they are not words - just going by the news.

    w00t is also not spelled with oo but two zero's.

    The whole thing is just stupid :D
