The newbie is the equivalent for gossip when it comes to asking question related to the game. Most of the time you will recieve a straight answer (unless, of course, the person in response is in a funny mood). Avoid asking silly questions such as "CN U WIZ ME?" should you risk getting beaten by a belt.
