For those who don't want to try reading the above:

Yeah, I learned l33t from MegaTokyo... Unfortunately, I find now that many people have learned this originally exclusive language...

It's all good.



Oh yeah, the l33t you used wasn't the same l33t used in MegaTokyo. I'm not arguing, I'm just saying it. Also, that was very annoying to look at. I'm sure that people who have trouble reading any form of l33t were frustrated.

(No more evildoing, or I'll smack you again you fool!)

Don't worry, it's all in good jest.

Are either of you MT forum users?

Everyone knows on the MT forums that there are very few cases in which you can get way with using l337. And n00bs soon find out when they should not use it i.e. never.

Aww... give me a break.

I know, I know it's a little of an eyesore, especially in a non-typewriter print, but... 17'5 r34ll*/ Fu|\|!!!

Actually, leet speak is just another form of english, it's not really offensive or anything, I don't see why people can be so hyped up about it.
The only time that they don't want to see it is because they've used it before, and they only want to use it, or because they don't understand leet speak at all.
That's what I've seen at least, and people who complain about something as simple as leet speak, well god, I just can't wait to see the "bitch fest" when the next thing to leet speak come back or becomes known.
What if I talked in binary code? or C++, I'm sure only about 16 people would understand what I'd talk about in those coding languages.
Well, there's my 5 cents,
Adios

The fact that you said that, and declared that which you said in that way, begs to defer from the actual content of what you indeed said, in that what you said is, in the manner of this reality- an actual false statement and bears no reality to the truth.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I find it kind of annoying if people use it excessively because even though I can read it, it takes a lot longer to read. (Misspellings/alternate spellings/poor grammar get to people for similar reasons--your mind takes longer while recognizing a less-common spelling.)

Gaah. I'm fine with l33t sp33k, but those n00bz that have to try and write every word |_||<3 T|-||5 are just plain annoying. Me and my friends occasionaly use l33t in casual conversation online, but not if it takes more than a few seconds to write.
