It's a sad day for the English language. I feel words such as these should not be part of the dictionary, they should stay as they are in the "underground" world of gaming.

Just think someday 3rd graders will be seeing words like H4X0R, and 13375p34k on their spelling tests... The gamers will be so proud.

IMHO the 1337 already have accomplished the brutilization of the language now.
LMAOROTF at those that don't see this as of yet.
OMFG what have we done!
We've taken acronyms to an extreme, and eliminated the need for a proper language education in one fell swoop.

The biggest problem is spelling. Do you spell it "w00t" or do you simply spell it "woot"? Do you spell it "l33t" or "1337" or "leet"? Do you spell it "h4x0r" or "haxor"?

OMG all u N00bs need to get with the program and speak 1337. It is the way of the future. Nothing more satisfying than pwning noobs with your superior skillz then owning them again when they cant understand your gloating in leetspeak. ahaha. LOLZORS. It's pointless, pure vindictive mutilation of the english language, BUT I LOVE IT.
CS:S FTW ahaha...
but seriously...my spelling has gone downhill

:(:(:(:(:(:(
