Stupidity based on the notion that a bunch of characters and numbers resemble letters, when in fact they don't. Not only does a 4 not look like an A, and a 3 doesn't look like an e, but the use of these substitutions results in a bunch of utterly useless and totally pointless phrases. Contrary to what a lot of losers believe, trying to make yourself understod through this type of comunication doesn't make you cool.

The language people are speaking when they t4|k l1k3 7h15. Spoken by the l33t. Produced by substituting numbers or charachters (or groups thereof) for letters. "A" becomes "4", or "/\" or "/-\". "B" becomes "8" or "|3", and so on and so forth. Some substitutions are mandatory: When speaking l33t, one does no use "you", but "j00". Similarly, "0"s should be substituded for "o"s whereever possible.
