    If someone has numbers in their IM handle or forum name.... you take them less seriously? Like, if they call themselves "JKDChick23" or "bruc3 133" ?

    Question also applies for people who put x before or after their name (xAsiaKillax) or use 1337-speak to substitute in for letters (see above).

    Rarely, but I make exceptions for people like greese1.


      And if you think that's stupid, here's another topic:

        Now I remember why I regret posting in your stupid threads.


          man, do you know how hard it is to get the handle Maverick first.

            Dammit! I should have take "nevermind"


              Mine started back in 95 when I tried to get my first hotmail account and the g (first initial)reese (last name) was taken. So I just snagged greese1...and since I am mentally lazy I have used that most of the time....except on gmail...where greese, greese1, grantreese, grant.reese, and several other things are mine...all mine!
              To derail a stupid thread, I have about 49 gmail invites if anyone wants one.
              And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.


                But I'm named after an awesome 80's movie robot!

                  And to answer your question, leet is a purely visual cant - it shouldn't be pronounced differently.

                  ie, 3l33t is pronounced 'elite'

                  Pr0n is 'porn'

                  juarez is 'wares', etc.

                  Pronouncing it out loud is the mark of the new-wave script kiddie newb puke.

                  the exception being when the netspeak is part of the joke, IE 'gr8-1' is "great one"

                  Just how I feel.

                      I do lose respect for people when they use 1337 though (yes, I know I do sometimes, but I'm trying to quit).

                        I love l33t.

                            Gah! That is awful!!


                              Somehow - awful doesn't quite encapsulate the repugnancy.
