k- /pref./ Extremely. Not commonly used among hackers, but
quite common among crackers and warez d00dz in compounds such
as `k-kool' /K'kool'/, `k-rad' /K'rad'/, and
`k-awesome' /K'aw`sm/. Also used to intensify negatives; thus,
`k-evil', `k-lame', `k-screwed', and `k-annoying'. Overuse
of this prefix, or use in more formal or technical contexts, is
considered an indicator of lamer status.
