Not literally using the l33t speak (except in their names where they use those little gay non alphanumeric characters) but the overall behavior that they are Muhammed Imar Bruce Lee. Every mmorpg I have played is just full of them.

With a game like NS you can just go to a different server and the game is no different. With an mmorpg you can't, not unless you want to start over.

Paying $50 and getting a single month free is kinda like pissing in our faces...I don't think getting a single month free is all that good of an incentive to pay $50 for a game. Sorry, but that's just me.
Yeah that is whats especially annoying. Also, if HL1 were priced like an mmorpg, I would have paid over a thousand dollars by now.
