PAWN! But uh...I've never really pronounced it.

I have said 'noob' unintentionally in real life before though, and people stared at me like I was a special.

I pronounce it like own because pwn is basically a mispelling of own, in the case that you hit an incorrect key. Lulz pwnt.

Lolz. I used to say Pawn, but then I moved and then everyone there was saying "Pown". So I guess I just adapted to that.

I actually use chatspeak in real life. Like, literally.
I say "lolz/lulz" all the time, I say "pwn" all the time, I say "ftw" all the time.
Except I don't say the abbreviations like "ftw", ex "eff tee doubleyou", I actually say it how it's spelled, ex "fuhtahwuh". Me and my friends do this all the time. ^^

I say pawn, but I try not to use Pwn, it makes me feel nerdy xD

However, in the WoW South Park episode, Cartman says you got pwn'd as pone'd

I pronounce it like this:

Pween.

I guess I'm weird, as everyone else seems to say "pawn". But I think my way sounds funnier!

It's a typo of 'own' since the p is right beside the o.
