Some of the terms used by players for gaming in general as well as game-specific jargon.

Team-Killing is when a player takes out his teammates. This is often a mistake and very rarely intentional.
kick
Kicking is when you vote to get rid of a teammate because they are causing a nuisance.
Grinding
Grinding is what happens when you rub your cycle against a wall. If you are running parallel to a wall and you are very close to it, you will be grinding. A sound effect and sparks will normally accompany a grind.
Doublebind
Doublebinding is what is referred to when more than one key is bound to the same action. A detailed discussion will not be provided on the Double Binding page.
Rubber
Rubber is a mechanism that helps to account for lag. An understanding of rubber is only of arguable use, a detailed discussion is available on the Rubber page.
Boxing

Lag
Lag is the difference between what you see on your computer screen and what is computed on the server which centralises all the different players info.
