    That's not really true anymore. Nerd is used in an affectionate way to mean somebody who is a little brainy.

    That's not true. I think you're being insensitive.
    I notice your nym is "notsweetynice."
    I went to the INTP central forum before and noticed it's full of insults, rudeness, trash talking, and nasty comments. I stay away from there. The INTJ central forum is boring but at least they don't talk a bunch of rude trash over there.

    I prefer Urban Dictionary:

    NERD:
    An 'individual', i.e. a person who does not conform to society's beliefs that all people should follow trends and do what their peers do. Often highly intelligent but socially rejected because of their obession with a given subject, usually computers. Unfortunately, nerds seem to have problems breeding, to the detriment of mankind as a whole.

    Um...do you need a hug?

    I don't think the OP meant it in offence to anyone, more that they were saying they have a somewhat unusual, or possibly eccentric passion for certain things.

    Kryten, you sound totally cute by the way.
