Oh, I can 'speak' it alright, and I can read it. I just find it useless 99.9% percent of the time.
I can also read backwards and upside down. That doesn't mean I want to do it every day.
I can also speak like a sailor, but that doesn't mean I should do so in front of a class of kindergartners.
Unlike most, I know the history behind 1337 and I know that the overwhelming majority of kids out there 'speaking' it are script-kiddies and wannabes who think using this pseudo-language makes them look cool.
It doesn't. It makes them look like jerks. Actually, the word I'd like to use is worse than that.
