Hey kids! Are you one of those happening, disco-dancing, cool-cats that is able to speak Internet slang?

The founder of 4Chan was in court recently and the judge (who clearly wasn't a trendy hipster even in the 70's) asked about the terminology used on the Internet:

Q. Is there a certain language that is commonly
used for users of 4chan?
A. In what sense?
Q. Certain terms, have a meaning unique to 4chan?
A. Yes.
Q. Like "OP," what is "OP"?
A. OP means original poster.
Q. Are you familiar these terms, having been the
founder and administrator of the 4chan site?
A. Yes.
Q. What would "lurker" mean?
A. Somebody who browses but does not post, does
not contribute.
Q. What do the words "caps" mean?
A. Screenshots.
Q. And is there any significance to "new f@gs"?
A. That is the term used to describe new users to
the site.
Q. What about "b tard"?
A. It's a term that users of the /b/- Random
board use for themselves.
Q. What about "troll"?
A. Troublemaker.
Q. "404"?
A. 404 is the status code for not found. It
means essentially gone or not found.
Q. Not found on where, the 4chan site?
A. 404 is the http status code for not found, a
page not found by the Web server.
Q. In what about "peeps"?
A. People.
Q. "Rickroll"?
A. Rickroll is a mean or Internet kind of trend
that started on 4chan where users -- it basically a bait
and switch. Users link you to a video of Rick Astley
performing Never Gonna Give You Up.

lol at the idea of "peeps" being exclusive to 4chan or even the internet.

Yeah, I don't think 4Chan uses peeps extensively.

It's an image board (essentially a forum) on 4chan.org.

I needed it explained to. My bf wont let me go there cause he said the ppl there post a bunch of kid porn and he knows I'd get in trouble if there was any porn history on my comp. And kid porn would be even harder to explain.

From what I know thats where really messed up people go and nobody does any real thinking. But thats just what I was told.
Without Royal there is a hole inside of me, I have no choice but to leave

I wasn't sure what the court case was about... I was hoping they busted someone for posting/downloading kiddie porn. panda said it's about the kid who hacked Sarah Palins email.
