When Is a Newb Not a Noob?

Just a short philosophical question for you today, with any luck the real action will be in the comments. :)
I was having a conversation with a friend of mine today, someone who just started playing recently. Her priest is somewhere in her thirties now, and she asked me a question that I had never really stopped to consider – one of those questions that must
an answer, if you could only put your finger on what it was.
She asked me, "When do you stop being a newb?"
Note that I use the term "newb" here, to draw a distinction between "newb" and "noob". For those of you who are not already aware, there is a distinct definition – a "newb" is someone who is new to the game, and is still learning the ropes, the slang, etc. A "noob" is someone who's been around for a while and failed to learn anything from the experience.
In either case, though, the question got me thinking. When did
stop being a newb? (Did I ever?) Was it the day I realized you could eat and drink at the same time? Or when I realized that the people talking in the General channel couldn't hear me if I spoke in /say? Was it the first time I ran an instance, or the first time I did a PUG? Or maybe the first day I learned what PUG stood for?
I thought about it for a while, and the best definition I could give her was: "You stop being a newb the day you can get through an entire instance run without having to ask them to slow down and explain anything." It's a fair definition, but I still feel like we can do better – for instance, it excludes people who prefer to solo quest, for instance, or pvp. These people are not newbs, but they still don't fit the definition.
So I don't like that one:
Can anyone come up with a better one
