    leetspeak is a hacker language

    Omg, i don't belive what i just read...I was so bored and looked for other kinds of google (like google Bork, latin and such). I found Google Hacker. I cliked on it and :shocked: it was writed in leet speak
    http://www.google.com/intl/xx-hacker/

    My curiosity was getting up, i typed 1337 5p43k in this same google and i find out that "leet" is an abreviation from elite (writed 31337). And the site was saying that the elite hackers used this language. Here's a quote of what they were saying
    And finaly thats where i find this http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=l33t
    I was very surprised to see this, because i always thought that leetspeak was only used by noobs and 5 years old kids

    He or she is obviously not a native English speaker. Cut him or her some slack. Speaking of English, curse it and its lack of a gender neutral, third person-singular pronouns.

    thx, my eyes are bleeding now

    1337 is for people too lazy to type, unless your like Xenon who uses it daily to confuse others

    this was hilarious tho

    It wasn't so much hacker websites as hacker chats.

    Interesting how little most people seem to know about this, just shows that internet history/fact can be just as shrouded and weird as real world society.

    I'm actaully trying to get the word "e" used for just that purpose.

    E is clearly not an english speaker.

    It flows well in speech and even sounds neutral. it looks fine in text too. Use it from now on and you can help me perfect the english language. now if only i could figure out a good possessive (his/hers - hs?) or object (him/her)

    No modifying the language, it'll never catch on. You're just stuck with he/she.

    In any case, what do you need a gender-neutral pronoun for? We have one, it's "it".
