"1337 speak"

You'll notice I make it a point to try and use correct grammar and spelling in every post I make. Whenever I type like that, it's because I'm making fun of whatever the topic is. In that case, the Cell and Sony's hype that it would save the world.

I'll admit though, I'm getting sick of making fun of Sony and will likely just read the threads from now on.

I don't care who it's making fun of. I'm just tired of seeing the "1337 speak". I just grabbed that post b/c it was close in the thread I was looking at. I didn't mention the poster b/c that wasn't the point. IMO, it's just tiresome at this point. I feel like I should be able to browse the console forum without having to deal with posts like that. In most of other forums, people mostly speak english, although it is sometimes broken since not everyone speaks english natively. Still, that's a godsend over the "1337 speak". Again, IMHO.

If you don't like it just ignore it, that's what I'd do. Some people think it's funny. If you think leet speak is offensive, you've got other problems man. Lighten up.

i think the console forum is the most entertaining forum here, w/ chris being the most entertaining person on the forum, between him and mr. hunt, i've actually laughed to the point where i've had tears in my eyes

the way i look at it, chris is like a professor, and when all these ppl "students" come in and challenge chris, he puts them back in their place, usually degrating and hilariously to boot

That was kind of the point, I thought. I don't know anyone who's saying it because it's "cool." It's used to insult and mock.
