w00t!

Leet words can be expressed in hundreds of ways using different substitutions and combinations, but once one understands that nearly all characters are formed as phonemes and symbols, leetspeek isn’t difficult to translate… Leet (a vernacular form of “elite”) is a specific type of computer slang where a user replaces regular letters with other keyboard characters to form words phonetically—creating the digital equivalent of pig Latin with a twist of hieroglyphics.

  1. I saw this a few days ago when my friend showed me, and only one thing stood out: Quote: “Leet words possibly indicating illegal activity: … pwn”

    Apparently, M$ thinks it’s illegal to play FPS games?

  2. dudes, this indicates serious thought and processed information of teh l33t language. my genuine regards for interpreting that much nonsense into the whole topic. first of all you should ping a master server to recieve your ips, then you should promptly connect to a qw server to come to the conclusion that the one whos about to connect to this server will insanely OWN you. Then this might give you the first glimpse to the understanding OF leet language. PUNKT

  3. and m$ should take an example in iD softwares L33tNESS, my optimum bigup flys out to id software for truely understanding the NEEDz of true gamers.

    you guys @ id software totally OWN, we LOVE YOU.
