but what exactly is a "pub" server? I've heard this term thrown around quite often but I still don't understand what it means. What determines whether a server is a "pub" server or a "non-pub" server?

Public.
Skial and such. Generally characterized by having absolutely no changes (full crits, damage spread on, everything goes, no class limits, etc.)
Generally has a lower skill level, but "pub stompers", especially on more popular servers, are common.

Expect to see many Snipers, Spies, w+m1 Pyros, as well as frequent amounts of good player either making themselves feel good for winning (usually a black box/gunboat rocket jumper), or people screwing around (such as me as a Mittens Hoovy).

Pub = Public game, random people, no organization, anything goes
PUG = Pick Up Game, people who organize teams that communicate and compete, usually extra rules or limitations exist (weapon restrictions, specific class set ups like 6s or highlander, etc.)
Lobby = a pub with more competent people basically, usually has specific class formats as well

Are you implying there's a non-public public server?

Wow. I didn't know there were so many different types of servers. All this time I've just been entering pubs through the in-game sever browser.
Live long and prosper.
