so it's bad to be "pwned", right? It means like "you lose". Correct?

Apparently. Although I have to wonder how anyone who can't spell owned correctly can win much of anything....

pwned = a more painful, grammatically incorrect version of owned
as in: "This dude just pwned me at World Of Warcraft. I went in my room and cried for hours..."

FTW = for the win
as in: "LOL, I got that lit match out of my ear. Q-tips for the win!"

WTF = what the f***
as in: "WTF? Since when was X&Y a good album?"
