1337 was fine where it was, in games. As soon as it came out onto instantmessages its been abused to no end.

The only internet speak I can't stand is AOLspeak. "omg I <3 u thx kk?". Its just so damn lame.

Pickleman> Ha, That's AOLspeak! 1337 6035 |_||<3 +|-||5 (leet goes like this). There is another version called Ultra leet but that's hard to do without a converter.

How many people find themselves wanting to say 'LOL' in real life though?

I nearly did the other day. That was scary.

Back on topic tho, all my emails, text messages and other stuff are usually proper English. I sometimes abbreviate if I really need to, like if I'm typing with only one hand in a rush.

People who cannot spell and don't have a good excuse like dyslexia are evil. Everyone makes mistakes now and then, or has a few words they don't know - but some people are just completely rubbish.

Like one guy I know, he spells 'exactly' as 'assactly' or 'azactly'. He's not dyslexic, he's just completely ignorant. I used to laugh, until I realised he wasn't kidding. Now I just get a quiet chill.

...brr <shudders at the thought>

Radix: Do you mean the dictionary option when making text messages? I rarely use it as most of the time I want to write something I get weird words like razzle when I really want to say something different.

Text speak I can deal with when it's on mobile phones, I rarely use it though, I used to do it on my first phone (a brick more like) because it had a character limit. And I also considered myself abit of a chav back then. (Thank God I came to terms a few months later) It could only process 100 characters, so I pretty much had no choice to type "lke dis" when dealing with long messages. My current phone can stand 1000 characters, meaning that I hardly ever use text speak anymore.

w00t I belive is basically like saying Woo! Correct me if you want, since I'm just guessing that. It's all a bunch of shitty nonsense anyway. Nerds thinking they are funny, sickens me.

Dines, I also said Laugh Out Loud once by accident, I felt like a fucking loser.

Well although I know what it means, I always imagine LOL as sounding like 'Lol'. So if I said it out loud I'd actually say 'lol' and it maketh no sense.

I tend to type kinda like how I speak, but unless I'm talking to mates on MSN or something I try to cut down on the Yorkshire dialect.
If I typed something like "Allreyt everyone, I've got summat to tell thee all," people would be like "what the fuck's that guy on about?!?"

How about this, STFU fuckface.

Wow, you're an idiot. 1337 started by people using it in chat and forums, so that they couldn't be understood by people who didn't know it (ie. moderators).

Leet started in many places.

Some things:

1. Pickleman didn't even say anything in this thread
2. You can't Quote on this forum
3. LEET is a fucking rediculous form of speech no matter where it started

Hope that clears it up.

Pickleman started the thread. I was just clearing something up but some n00bs like Chicken obviously have some a problem with it.

I know you cant quote so I just posted their message before mine.

Lastly, Agreed.
