its not a language, its jargon, I think it originated from Hackers trying to not get their messages caught on search engines, I could be mistaken though. Thats how I heard it

but 1337 is where you replaces letters for different characters 1 = l, 3 = E, 4 = A, 5 = S and so on

Its called 1337 speak, used to be called 31337 speek, but 1337 sounded cooler, and ofcourse it means elite speak

A friendly comment: you must have known when you joined CF, that it would entail typing, as will a lot of jobs that you'll be applying for, why not invest in a course of typing, once you get into it, you'll be fine!, it becomes addictive, believe me.

Lol Oddly enough I can read those kind of posts fluently XP Dont know about anyone else

(Obviously a joke, If we were to have 1337 speak on the boards that would be chaos..)

Oh Oh! We should have a forum of 1337! And thats all you post in! and you can actually have conversations and games where you see how hard you can make it on someone to read =D lol

Then the posters can typo to their hearts content and We wont make fun of them because it looks like theyre supposed to be typing that way XP
Don't you dare!!! [lol]

I agree 100% with this thread. I'm tired of reading posts with stuff like "I dun no wat 2 do"
That kind of typing makes my brain hurt
