No, it does not. Pathetic - yes. Scary - no.

I think 404 should be an evil number for Googlism. Just hate it when it comes up

404. Every time I see it, it enrages me, and fills me with fear. Yes, that number is most definitely evil.

I think 404 should be the evil number as well. Hate it!

OK, I may be a little dense here (it's 1am on my 16th, what do you expect! ) but what's 1337?

If you need a special code to tell people you are 'elite', wait, this response really isn't worth it. Nevermind

It`s not just the word, sadly.

"leet" is a version of computer slang, which substitutes letters with similar-looking digits (also, possibly, replacing syllables with similar-sounding digits. one - 1, to - 2, ate - 8 and so on.) and twists the words around into unsavory sound (phonics make a comeback here).

It`s origins lie in 70-80s, when networking was ridiculously expensive, and every byte sent counted. Programmers of that age often used substitutions like: u - you, a1? - anyone?, thx - thanks and others. This was pretty much a necessity at the time. Programmers also used network terms for communication. For example, exchange "SYN" - "SYN ACK" - "ACK" would mean "Hey, anyone here?" - "Hey, I`m here." - "Cool." Similarly, "SYN" - "NAK" would be "Hey?" - "Sorry, busy.

Network terms had not made it into modern chatspeak, sadly, but syllable-digit substitution did. Because of initial hype, it was often considered that whoever is speaking like this must be hacker. Which, ironically, isn`t true, since network traffic is much more allowable those days, and hackers have no explicit need for substitutions.

Leet is a degenerate evolution of chatspeak, which sacrifices readability and speed of typing for the added factor of typing like a "hacker". Obviously, "leet" itself has little to do with initial comms code, since it`s logemes are usually even lengthier, then in standard English.

In short, "leet" speak is for the naive and unexperienced on ego trip. It`s become a tell-tale sign of "lamer", as a result.
