Let's compile some tf2 terminology and such that newer players might not be familiar with when you scream it at them over VC.

Most of the basic stuff is covered at the official wiki:
http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Glossary_of_player_terms

But we have a lot of terms that aren't covered there as well, or deserve special mention here just because they are used so much  Grin.

Post suggestions here:
