MORON Vs MORAN - An educational thread.
I would like to once and for all clear up the spelling of the term MORON.

Many people on GLP spell MORON, MORAN...

Forget the urban dictionary, lets see what the World's leading Dictionary states regarding the spelling and meaning of both MORAN and MORON:

See below....


MORAN (moran)
A member of the warrior group of the Masai people of East Africa, which comprises the younger unmarried males.
Origin: Masai


MORON (moron)
Informal
A stupid person: We can’t let these thoughtless morons get away with mindless vandalism every weekend.
Origin: early 20th century (as a medical term denoting an adult with a mental age of about 8–12): from Greek mōron, neuter of mōros 'foolish'.

SOURCE: Concise Oxford Dictionary (THE WORLD's MOST TRUSTED DICTIONARIES)

[link to oxforddictionaries.com]

I was very relieved to see that Trinity (GLP owner) spelt the word MORON, in a recent thread he made.

So there you have it, it's spelt MORON.... NOT MORAN, unless you are talking about Masai Warriors, which isn't exactly a big put-down being compaired to a Warrior.

The people you really have to watch out for are the ones who create entire threads to "educate" people about "MORON Vs MORAN".

"Forget the urban dictionary"?? Why should we?? That's where you'll find the exact reason people are spelling it the way they do. Instead of getting all preachy, just accept that there are internet memes that are apparently beyond your comprehension.

morAn - someone who is picking on the grammar errors of many that post on GLP (a conspiracy forum on the internet). This wrongful spelling has been done by many on PURPOSE for years now, to pick on the ones who do not type it on purpose. Similar to pwned but a spelling error rather than a typing error.

For example. OP is a morAn for beginning this thread. NOOB does not describe his depth of morAnicness.
