Abreviated form of the word "elite" often used in chatrooms and message boards; though mainstream popularized by the game Quake, where the l337 routinely fragged the hell out of lamers (unLee7 web-vermin). The "language", as it were, is generally characterized by the phonetic misspelling of words and replacement of various letters with numbers and symbols.

A dialect used either by people who think they are cool, or hackers (and people pretending to be hackers.) Involves replacing letters with numbers and/or symbols that look like them (and sometimes don't), and often mispelling, changing and abbreviating words. (SoMeTiMeS wRiTtEn LiKe ThIs) Is usually barely readable, and sometimes incoherent.

(n). A *hypocritical* form of internet lingo and a result of Americans and others who decided to bastardize the English language even further- consider it the nerd's Ebonics. Commonly used by "n00b"-bashing, forum-threading, ninja-obsessive elitist gamers and anime zealots across the land who *often complain about TeEnY BoPpEr LiNgO*.
Warning: If you are able to read hard-core leet without squinting or muttering curses under your breath, it's about time you put down the chopsticks and get a life.
Here's some leet for ya: I'll "pwn" "j00" with my "n1nj4" skills. After I shove the blade of an ice skate down my throat.
