Keyboard Warrior

I would always gag when L mention the term so and so is a keyboard warrior. At the back of my mind it would always portray an image of the "warrior", in front of their desk top "chionging" with their keyboard.

I decided to delicate my time on the term, keyboard warrior.
With all, I am surprise, in which, there's many other warrior status! Keyboard whore, keyboard tramp, keyboard face and even keyboard failure! Just for laugh, so of which are you?

Keyboard warrior;

1. A Person who, being unable to express his anger through physical violence (owning to their physical weakness, lack of bravery and/or conviction in real life), instead manifests said emotions through the text-based medium of the internet, usually in the form of aggressive writing that the Keyboard Warrior would not (for reasons previously mentioned) be able to give form to in real life.

2. The term is a combination of the word 'keyboard' (the main tool by which the person expresses his/her latent rage) and 'warrior' (due to the warrior-like aggression, tendency towards violence, headstrong nature and propensity towards brute force as a means of resolving conflict rather than more subtle means dependant on finesse).

3. Keyboard Warriors are generally identified by unneccessary rage in their written communications, and are regarded as 'losers' by other virtual identities on the internet.
