Doot is a greeting that can take either a physical or vocal form.


The verbal form is used by players on MUCKs, particularly FurryMUCK. It is considered to be coined by Wingshine to be used as her "magpie response" to any greeting.[citation needed] Its secondary meaning seems to be either as a replacement to often used single questions words used by furs to request the delivery of information (i.e."Why?," "Who?," "When?," etc, ) or as single word responses to a query (i.e. "Yes," "No," "Maybe," etc.). It is also prevalent among dragons.


The physical form is similar to a hug, used by players on other MUCKs such as Alfandria.[citation needed]
