    One of the traits of a geek is not being very susceptible to peer pressure, so dont try

    Another trait: it's to correct people who are susceptible to spelling mistakes or don't fully understand the use of the apostrophe.

    I reckon most, if not all, geeks are pedantic at some level simply because they tend to have a high degree of attention to detail.

    Yep, me too. That is one of the hallmarks I guess and drives non geeks nuts.

    I dont mind being called geek, I dont look like one though hmmm.

    In the early boom of intel 486 computers, I took offense, but not any longer, the interest has grown beyond most sort of individuals.

    The username may also in some cases provide an indication of someone's geekiness

    Since it's turning into Geeks Anonymous... Yes, I am a geek. I've been a geek since I got my first computer (at least!). But I'm proud to be one if nothing else. And quite frankly I couldn't care less if others consider me to be one or not.

    There!

    Perhaps I'm a mix of both. I love computers and I'm a workaholic too!
