so i SIGNED up with GeekForum.org to get some questions asked and then... They kicked me off. Don't even know why? I must not be geek enough for them. But I'm geek enough for you guys right?

Yep, you're geeky enough for us. Maybe they've had a rash of trolls and thought you were one. Geeks just love power, so yeah. Most of the time they're geeky douches.

Let me join just for the hell of it. I wanna see if I get popped off.

Isn't there a difference between the terms "Nerd" "Geek" and "Dork"? My "cool" little cousin was trying to teach me, cuz one day I actually professed to turning to the "cool" side because being a "nerd" was too expensive, and she started correcting me...and then I realized I didn't understand "popular" talk, so I tuned her out.

Damn thats a lot of quotes. XD

Does this mean I'm geeky enough? XD XD XD

I made this apparent to my superiors at work and they all laughed their asses off. So being in the army makes you not as geeky as people think you are. What the crap?

I was under the impression that all three were the same.

There is indeed a difference.

Geek refers more to a follower of fandoms and nifty-type dealies, while a nerd is more into technical stuff and spending time edifying themselves. A dork is someone who's awkward in every which way.

Personally, I think Xeu's more adorkable.

Adorkable suits you well. XD

And thank you for the clarification, Rogue. Not sure if it was off topic or not, but the thread title reminded me of the conundrum. Either way, I'm thinking being "cool" might be cheaper. I've been looking at the money I spend for my fandom, and the money "cool" people are spending and...Well, I can see why I'm always broke and my nieces aren't. :p

One of my friends likes to argue Geek was his time, and nerds were our time. But I dunno. Oh well!

I am "awesome" in the end.

Psh.
Being "cool" may be cheaper, but being a dork/nerd/geek is much more fun.

Lmao. You need a budget, Katana. A very small, well rounded budget

I'm a total mix of the three. Around my friends I am a total geek, bragging about the cool things that I buy and my computer. When I'm alone I tend to become more of a nerd, expanding my knowledge via the internet or books. Around strangers I'm a total dork.

I believe I'm just a nerd and a dork. Geek doesnt seem to fit too well on me.

Ha, I saw that before I came on here and saw the thread. How awesome.

But yeah, I'm a Geek/Nerd hybrid... though more nerdy than anything else.

I like to think of myself as a disturbing hybrid of cultural acceptableness and geekiness. I love dungeons and dragons and video games and old cartoons, but I also try to be well-versed in "regular people topics" so I have something to talk about with everyone. I am not very technically proficient aside from film equipment, though.
