i think it was more to *bypass* security that leetspeak originated ... i was on BBS's and early UNIX internet, super-slow modems and no leetspeak needed. but when looking for um, shall we say, certain fileZ ... they could only be found when misspelled. i noticed it in filesearches far before i saw it in chat.

i'm 36 and frankly it's scary to be able to read leetspeak fluently *lol* i can't type it that fast, tho.
