    I prefer to use the term "1337 speak" for games only...what those kids use is called chatspeak. Psh , like they even know what l33t is.

    L33t speak might not make you look like a criminal, but it certainly makes you look retarded.

    It's teh D4ng3r!

    Seriously though, that kit was a bit of a twit.

    The only reason that kind of text was invented really was so that illegal activities could occur, it was then bought into the semi-idiot-stream

    My mum certainly can't :worried:

    TBH this is just way of blaming anything but bad parenting, because that could never be the case.

    If someone was talking to me like that, I'd block them.

    If they thought it was 1337, I'd hit them.

    Ive heard of another underground movement like this - but schools are teaching it. Parents dont know what its all about, wahtsoever and its POTENTIALLY KILLING OUR KIDS.

    They call it...... "French".

    Honestly - must have been a slow news week :)

    edit: also, did they even THINK that some people just use it so there text messages dont use up 2 texts ? I dont use it but it serves it purposes.

    Not what they were using. That was txt-talk, only abbreviating... show that kid on that clip some real £33╫ and he'd not understand it, 'cause I'm teh r0xo|2

    | couldn't help but thinking (wishing): "Surely this is a spoof, right? Right?" But alas, they were actually serious. People are morons... :duh:
