Okay seriously people, a "scrub" is a trainee, someone who knows some of the ropes, but has yet to mature to full understanding of the more subtle rules/methods used.Yes, "newb"/"newbie" could've been used to mean much the same thing, however a newbie tends to be used to reefer to someone who is completely new to something and therefore has no understanding of many of the simple rules.Therefore, "scrub" is more befitting than "newbie" and less demeaning than "noob" "nub" or an actual real world insult like "idiot". It outlines the player base that often fall foul to the misconception of the graveyard being beneficial. And yes, the article should be professional considering its popularity now-a-days, however its still on the internet and therefore internet slang can and will be used.If you find the word offensive, please overlook it and pay attention to the actual point of the article, which is not one of insulting "lesser PvPers". The point of the article is that a poor design mechanic has been emphasised instead of fixed, and become an even worse honey-pot for those who don't realise its counter-intuitive purpose.
