From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

     An even lower form of life than the spod, found in much the
     same habitat as the former.  though more prevailent on talker
     systems.  Unlike spods, upon receiving the desired response
     to the question "Are you male or female?", dweebs will then
     engage upon a detailed description of themselves and how
     wonderful they are, often in the hopes of truly impressing the
     other with their "charm" and "wit".  Nearly all dweebs are
     male, but very few actually live up to the image that they
     present.  Dweebs, unfortunately, are often the cause of
     ill-will, and may well bring a bad reputation to the system in
     question.  They are often, however, easy to wind up and can be
     the source of great mirth to the seasoned user.
