A lamer would be a wanna-be hacker with absolutely no coding/cracking skills at all.
Also, it was used as an insult between rival pirate groups.

They possess a tendency to tAlK lIkE tHiS or add lot’s of random characters at the beginning and end of their screen name.
They like to hang around in chat rooms, tick folk off with their scrolling of macros and constant asking of “A/S/L???” and are usually in their teens.
They attempt to talk ‘code’ with you and identify themselves (unknowingly) as a ‘script kiddy’.
They annoy the crap out of people over the net so innocently in their n00b like manner, yet..
They are almost amusing to MANY people.
PeggyLuXXX: “You mean the program of which changes your FONT?”
Lamer: “i want meh writin all coooooooooool.”
PeggyLuXXX: “Go and download it from the web site I gave you.”
PeggyLuXXX: “*Sigh*.. Er, why? o_O.”
Lamer: “duNNo 2 hard. a/s/l?????????????????????.”
Basicly a Lamer is a coward, a camper, a troll, a cheater, anything that spoils the online gaming experience of others.
In an online shooter a lamer would hide and “frag” bypasser neglecting he has other goals to do, in team based games a Lamer will stick to the winning team even if its clear that changing would make the game more fun for everyone.
