1337 isn't cool.
Mocking 1337 isn't funny.
I can attest to 1337 being on the usenets to get around filtering.

UltimateOmega: You have no idea what you're talking about. Give it up before you get any further behind. 1337 originally started as a method of disguising files on IRC, using names like fux0r or pr0n to prevent wordmatches. It was adopted and expended into normal speech when the whole Scene thing was happening, as a method of showing just how 1337 you are, but very, very quickly obtained the joking status it has today. Kind of like how you say boxen or virii as pseudo-plurals. The only, and I repeat ONLY article of 1337 to ever come from a game was 'pwn,' which comes from a Warcraft tpyo.

Broomie: w00t comes from MUDs. It's short for 'Wonderous Loot.' So you say w00t when you've just done somthing neat, or gotten into somewhere you're not supposed to.

I like the irony of "warcraft tpyo".

But yes, Radix is correct. I'd research something before stating it as fact, especially if Radix is in the argument. He's a self-proclaimed genius. Or at least, very efficient with Google.

Blizzard fixed the "pwn" typo VERY soon after it was discovered, but it was too late. It leaked out and took over like no man's candy.

Finally, I won't say anything about people that use leet speak, but leet speak itself is a fucking stupid thing to incorporate into mainstream chat. I can understand the practical uses of it to avoid keyword searching and detection, but that's where it should have stayed.

My senior high school was selective, which meant there weren't as many assholes as most schools. There were a couple of pricks, but they were too frightened of the korean gangsta kids (who, as far as I can tell, are led by whoever is the shortest) to pick on the geeks, and since you aren't korean if you don't play video games, everyone left us alone. So basically, the coolest kids were the geek group; hardcore gamers and coders and otaku.
Kind of like how the 'cool' kids generally try to show off how ignorant they are by practising ebonics, a bunch of us spoke occasionally in 1337. Not too much lol'ing, but w00ts and -x0r's were pretty common. Nobody knew what the fuck we were talking about, apart from our computer science teacher, Rix0r.

IF YOU WANT TO GET TECHNICAL ABOUT ORIGINS: leet speak didnt originate on IRC, It originated to avoid filters on swear words things like IRC forums etc if you check nowadays dont have any filters as swear words are more tollerated by the general public and thus the need for "shit head speak" is no longer required and from my own recollection the most used area of leet speak etc was on Tribes 1 as that had an extensive word filter built into it... as Tribes has always been a very tallent based game...

...and can some admin lock this form!

I agree, people who use "Teh", especially in their username, thinking it's funny, are usually incouragable morons.

It's a means for children and adults alike to share pornography and music, and slag each other off without getting beat up.

I only slag off people who deserve it, and who's ass I'd kick in real life anyway.
