Definition [Copy and Paste Newbie]: abbreviated as CPN , also used in the medical field as CPN Syndrome
A person new to a game, concept, or forum. Not to be confused with n00b
, a stupid person. Newbies are just new. The main characteristics for Forum postings is, that they don't bother to read the opening post of a new thread and they just reply in the middle of the conversation with sometimes a completely irrelevant post. In registration list to any event or any other type of requests, requiring to copy and paste the previous registrants, they tend to create their own list, deleting others.
"Dude, that guy just joined the forum yesterday and is a total Copy and Paste Newbie to Forums. You should tell him how to register since he doesn't know or guide him to a thread, where it is explained.
A CPN would often blame the technology (smartphone, tablet etc) for the lack of neuromuscular coordination that exhibits itself when dealing with lists. In some very rare cases, the CPN actually have an index finger shorter than a thumb, so using a mouse is even troublesome. However, denial and selective amnesia are frequent symptoms exhibited by CPNs who quickly forget about the mess they caused, and pretend that nothing happened. Only 60% of CPNs can be fully and premanently cured as per recent FDA reports.
