    Yeah, that's why it says: "Understand how your kids communicate online" [​IMG]

    Not something I expected them to do. Found it very amusing. And then there's the "Was this information useful?" survey at the bottom too. :p

    omg... I still seriously think the whole Leet speaking is the dumbest thing.
    Seriously... why take the time to do this |-|3||0 for Hello... It took me longer to try to type that out. The whole point of the internet was to make information faster, not to screw up a written language.

    Yeah its really rediculous. I think the funniest thing would be a parent trying to be "hip" with their kids and one day when johnny comes home mommy or daddy goes "y0 J0hnny h0w was skoool for joo? Did you pwn the other kids at basketball practice? those kids are such newbs."

    or something like that :p

    @Netryder I was being sarcastic..... :)

    Its bad enough that kids cant spell right to start with and now all they do is type all messed up and they never learn or better their skills.

    Just too lazy most of them thats all that is.

    I think this is one of those prime examples of one of those things people "think" that other people do. Stereotype is too loose of a word... but I really dont know anybody that actually talks like this. It really isnt considered "cool" in any group. imo anyway... .

    It's not too bad. These are pretty common words for teens especially within IRC/Gaming communities. It's as normal to them as it is normal for people to write a paragraph here on the forums ranting about how ridiculous we think this is.
