Considered to be an even lower form of life on the Net than the spod, dweebs are generally found in a similar habitat, though they tend to be more prevalent on talker systems. Upon receiving the desired response to the question, "Are you male or female?" dweebs (unlike spods) will then engage upon a detailed description of themselves and how wonderful they are, apparently hoping to truly impress you with what they consider charm and wit. Nearly all dweebs are male, and very few actually live up to the image they present. Dweebs are often the cause of ill will and may well bring a bad reputation to the chat room or system in question. They tend to be, however, easy to wind up and can be the source of great mirth for the seasoned user.
