I use 13375p34k because...I don't know why. I never shorten "you" to "u," or "to" (or "too") to "2."

Wow, that is the funniest sentence I think I've ever typed.

ANYHOW...

I used to be on BBSs back in the bad old (-ish) days as well (next year my handle will be old enough to vote), and I remember the first 1337-i5# type of writing I saw: "warez" for "wares," or pirated software, and "phreak" for "freak," or hack into and pillage copywritten programs and systems.

At the time, I was the only person I knew who had a computer in the house - or wanted one. I never would have guessed at how far they would have spread, or that some day I would be looking back at "hakk/phreak warez sitez" with nostalgia.
