Default Am I a Nit?

A couple of people called me a nit in the deep stack thread. Maybe I am. I don't know.

Someone give me the traditional 2+2 definition of a nit and/or the origin of the word so I can decipher if I should take offense.

Thanks.

well how old are you and how long have you been playing live 1/2 poker without moving up? over a year?

do you limp AK or QQ in early position?

do you pick on people who are younger and better looking than yourself merely because they have been more successful in their shorter poker careers?

i think 2/3 qualifies you...

Thirty. Yes. Why do I need to move up?

AK, limp, this hand sucks. QQ, raise it up.

Not at all. I pick on people who let it be known that they are loaded and high rollin and going to clean up the toughest games in town, when they have had no experience doing such a thing. I do this, because I encounter these people everyday.

If I pass judgement on someone and am wrong, so be it. I have been wrong before. There are plenty of good, young, poker players. There are plenty of pretenders too.

Still didn't give me a definition.

Bonus-

If players were placing illegal sidebets with people on rail about the color of the flop for each hand, would you feel bothered and call the floor/dealer to do something?

Glad that I have been able to amuse you. So I am definately a nit because I don't raise AK in early position? Let me guess, a non-nit would just push here right?
