Considering this:

The word pwn most likely came about as a common typo of the word "own" because the "p" and "o" keys are adjacent on a standard English keyboard.
I've always read it as "pown". This was also apparently originated as the aforementioned typo in the game Counter-Strike.
Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".
