LMM has set me straight about Noobs and Newbies. So I found a great article on it:

(The article was on an anonymous forum. I just wrote a two line intro--so you don't think I was calling myself great.) Giggle

True. I actually associate 'noob' with gaming and it's an insult to call someone a noob. It usually immediately following the new guy/gal getting everybody's characters killed. Giggle

Noobish would also be a variant of LEET speak, made popular by the manga MegaTokyo.

Leet
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Leet (or "1337"), also known as eleet or leetspeak, is an alternative alphabet for the English language that is used primarily on the Internet. It uses various combinations of ASCII characters to replace Latinate letters. For example, leet spellings of the word leet include 1337 and l33t; eleet may be spelled 31337 or 3l33t.

The term leet is derived from the word elite. The leet alphabet is a specialized form of symbolic writing. Leet may also be considered a substitution cipher, although many dialects or linguistic varieties exist in different online communities. The term leet is also used as an adjective to describe formidable prowess or accomplishment, especially in the fields of online gaming and in its original usage, computer hacking.
