No translator for me. I'm fluent. ;-D :-o


"Ya it's not that new"

Why does "j" stand for "Y?"

I think because it makes a "y" sound in some European languages so people use it for y.

In fact, I think very few young teens use "leet" in general online conversation. It's just a bunch of abbreviations and misspellings because they don't know how to type. This leet thing seems way more complicated than your average, idiot, Fergie-album-buying 14 year old is willing to participate in. The article in the beginning kind of blurs it too, going into the whole "lol" and "lmao" crap that's just annoying, but not rocket science to figure out.

The only people who talk with all the symbols and crap are people who are doing it for the sake of being geeks, not because they're dangerously hiding their activities from their parents.

Yeah exactly people don't use it talking to their friends on AOL or anything. They kept showing a list of abbreviations...that's what people use but it's certainly not 1337.
