    And you can actually look up the English definitions of the two words and discover that they have differences that are accepted across English speaking cultures.
    Wikipedia says this (emphasis mine):

    Definitions

    The definition of geek has changed considerably over time, and there is no longer a definitive meaning. The terms nerd, gimp, dweeb, dork, and spod have similar meanings as geek, but many choose to identify different connotations amongst these terms, although the differences are disputed. In a 2007 interview on The Colbert Report, Richard Clarke said the difference between nerds and geeks is "geeks get it done."[3] Julie Smith defined a geek as "a bright young man turned inward, poorly socialized, who felt so little kinship with his own planet that he routinely traveled to the ones invented by his favorite authors, who thought of that secret, dreamy place his computer took him to as cyberspace—somewhere exciting, a place more real than his own life, a land he could conquer, not a drab teenager's room in his parents' house."[4]
    Now I haven't looked up "nerd", but that description I highlighted is pretty much the one I had in mind, not "a(n) (possibly pesudo)-intellectual whose relative weakeness is social interaction". Obviously as an INTP I consider myself the latter.

    Also, people get banned from forums for being stupid or acting stupid all the time. People also go to jail/prison in real life for being stupid. It's pretty common, actually
    I'm not aware of the practice of imprisoning people for stupidity, but regardless, the fact that the members of forum would wish to emulate such a practice is enough reason for me to use the "geek" epithet and, as a fellow INTP, criticize such people as unhealthy.

    nah, INTJforums is different. They are concerned with being right and flawless, and ar enot cliquey. INTPc tytpical poster is more concerned with being popular and taking pleasure in relating their shortcomings, and are cliquey.

    obviously not talking about every single poster if this needed clarification. just the overriding atmosphere.

    I asked you a pretty simple question. Can you answer that for me.

    And Wikipedia? . . . really? Can't you dive a little deeper?

    So you're not aware of people doing stupid things and ending up in prison?

    Lastly, I don't care who you criticize, honestly. I mean, you're just a person with an opinion, right? You can make whatever claim you'd like. It doesn't really matter.

    If we're going to infiltrate, then we have to start out as if we're normal INTPs (Cough, basically talk and act like one; it might be hard, but basically like a smart-arse).

    We'll investigate to see which person has the greatest power/influence in the forum. (from what I have gathered so far, it's Hustler who is leading the whole operation of hateful INTPs. Destroying him means win.)

    Then we'll slowly troll (SLOWLY! Make the torture fun!ENJOY THE SLOW KILL ) towards each person, and try to make them submit by using your 1337 personalities (w/e your type is). Each professional comeback gets you 1 kill/1 point. Most kills = win..

    A mass attack on Hustler and every posts he makes. A kill on Hustler = 5 points.

    If we have 50 or more people in the raid, and silently, it's almost impossible for them to defend. If we act all like normal INTPs (AKA, smart alec, I don't give a sh*t) then there's no way they can find us out. I'll see if this raid will be set forward (need at least 10 people).

    We can also have a competition in the raid; whoever lasts the longest and survives, wins the honour of everyone's appreciations. Along with whoever gets the most kills; they get a prize.

    When the INTPs are suspicious, SUGAR-ATTACK. MAKE THEM CRINGE WITH YOUR SWEETNESS/AWESOMENESS/HAPPINESS. MAKE THEM CRINGE. SPAM YOUR LOVE OUT. But don't be STUPID. Do it at your own pace, take this as if you're doing this on TypoC.

    INTPs can join as well this operation. Hell, anyone can join. I specifically would like trolls along.

    Wait will Haight ban me on TypoC though? If yes, then forget everything I said...

    (If anyone is up for it, just post here or something. Then I'll know, and I'll make a group specifically for raiding. We can even put some sort of Warcraft theme in there as well, if you want! )

    Honestly, I think this is a really bad idea.

    ^^ Ming, how long do you think you could make that infiltration tactic work, by convincing anyone that you're an actual INTP? It's not like it worked last time...

    I thought you were a madmin, haha! Though it still works, even if you're already there, right? (And you could unblock my IP address so that I can post. I won't use 'Ming', but I can always use something else :P)
