L337, commonly thought of as simply a variation of the english language used in various 'old school' hacker rings, is also a following, similar to Buddhism, but only on the surface. To be L337 is to follow the principals of being a nerd, geek or other group of technologically enlightened. Certain circles will tell you that being L337 requires a person to be able to assemble a computer system while naked. Others believe L337 is something of a scene. A higher echelon of nerd hirearchy. Even further, l337 has also been documented as something of an unwritten religious movement and cult following incorporating computers and various types of media. The favored medium being online video games. Where as Kung-Fu is a martial art origionating from eastern religions, online games are the martial art extending from being L337 where followers can display their prowess. Playing video games online does not neccisarily make you L337.
1. I just got pwned by this guy online. Four versus one and this guy won 8 rounds before someone ever even got a hit on him. He was truely L337.

2. John is L337. He just modded out my case with cathodes and two new sticks of ram, making my rig faster AND sexier. He did it naked, too.

An internet sub-language used to either disguise what is being said, so that those who don't know it can't understand (especially authority), or as internet/gaming shorthand.

Commonly humourous and antagonistic
e.g. d00d i p(-)|_|9|<1|\|6 pwn

A basic shorthand form has now infected mobile phone texting and wannabe teenage speak, but that is weak and annoying - typified by people who can't actually spell rather than a clever disguise.

Written well it is as attractive and versatile as any language, and can be written in different ways.

Naturally, people who don't 'get' computers or gaming do what they always do to things they don't understand - they attempt to ridicule (handlover? Shanjay, WTF?), serving only to make themselves look all the more ignorant...
