    A few you may have missed:

    Kinderdudenator - (n) - That guy who at every Event/Gathering feels the need to have his character "fart" "pass gas" "belch" or make other bodily functions in an effort to be funny. But really just makes you feel like you just stepped into a kindergarten classroom.

    SpellTalkerist - (n) - This is the person in game who can't seem to speak at a function without trying to be cute and making their speech occur at the bottom of the screen instead of over their head, (possibly in effort to keep them from looking like a Kinderdudenator), So they cast a spell before each time they speak.

    EverNooBicus - (n) - This is the person who has played the game longer or as long as you have yet never has a clue about anything new. The one whom after ever patch goes.... "Hey, what was that patch about?".... Never reads any forums... and doesn't even look at any patch notes.

    Deathopathy - (adj) - This is the uncanny ability of your mouse to cause you to pathfind at the worst possible moment (even though you have it set NOT to pathfind) so it can cause your character to die.

    Which, of course, leads to:

    Psychopsychimotic - (n) - A roleplayer that insists on emoting thoughts that, since the situation is being roleplayed, could not possibly be known by the other roleplayers present, and then two weeks down the line will insist that your character should have known because he/she emoted that knowledge in your presence, even though your own character possesses absolutely no psychic ability whatsoever. [ie: *considers killing Ra'Dian because he's making fun of me*]

    Idiotbounce - What you do when you're running past a private house and you accidentally clip the edge of the steps and get bounced back unable to cross, and then try 2 or 3 more times to cross the same spot thinking that it might magically let you pass just this once.
     
  24. Mine, All Miner - (n) - The tendency of miners to scoop up their ore piles (but not dropping them in their pack) to make sure a passer-by doesnt help himself.

    Vendork - (adj) - That guy with an impeccably organized and categorized set of vendors in his house... but can't be bothered to ever stock them.

    Blockknocking - (v) - Killing that deer, skittering hopper or gypsy NPC on principle after he blocked your recall in and made you wait till he/it moved.

    PvPeeved - (n) - The fanatic belief and related harrassment/abuse that the ONLY, ONLY possible way that you won in a PvP duel is that you are a cheating, speedhacking, template-gimping son of a #$%#.

    POFsession - (n) - The compulsion to rush home and use a Powder of Fortification charge on any item that hits 245 durability / the compulsion to up a useful item up to 255 all at once.

    Tardy Tard - (n) - (a.)

    MoronHoard - (n) - Another UO-OCD thing about gathering ridiculous amounts of an obscure resource simply because of the sole (lunatic) reasoning that IT STACKS, and therefore doesnt take any more secure space as having one of the item. (Ref. Prince Caspian)

    The WoWzorbeturdenjoos (n.) - A self proclaimed WoW player that comes to the game to say how much it "sucks" yet doesn't seem to go away once he says that but instead continues to ask questions without regard to grammar like "why to you even play this stupid game" and "how can you stand these graphics".

    Technically, wouldn't the lower-case "a" in "aCCIDENTLY" be missing in most of these cases?

    MegaSurance - n. The insistance on insuring everything in your pack and body, regardless of whether it is worth 600gp to do so.

    FactionMart - n. The usually semi-temporary vendors that factions put up in their towns with taxes set at minimum. Most real UO shoppers find them within 30 seconds of noticing a town is in "low tax" mode.

    FactionMacy's - n. The left-over vendors that factions leave in their towns after they have increased taxes back up to "ridiculous level". Also can apply to some of the resource vendors after the patch that allowed their prices to step up on purchases.

    ShopStepper - n. A person trying to increase vendor spawns of reagents, scrolls, or bottles to 999 for bulk purchases by purchasing and timing returns on the spawn rates of the shopkeepers.

    StepStomper - n. Person who notices standard vendors with 400+ items on them and starts purchasing all the batches as they spawn. NOT the ShopStepper.
