if that means 'i dont understand', then you probably never been around chat rooms / blogs / or the internet in general
it is so called '1337' (leet == elite) speak, where you basicaly substitute letters with appropriate numbers, etc

im glad to see im not the only one walking those obscure paths, but john buckels had some experience as well

i think by now the trend of 1337 (sp34k) is gone (luckily), it just irritated me the same as using aLtErNaTiNg TyPiNg
seriously ... who does not break their fingers this way ?
im already nursing CTS from hardcore pipetting

with this, another thread was derailed
and now for something completely different ...
