    Hello JinX

    Hello JinX....

    What does 31337 mean..
    and H4X0R <- a zero, not an o..
    Or 14M3...
    31337 stands for "Elite"
    H4X0r stands for "Hacker"
    14M3 stands for "Lame"

    Hope that helped

    Its called leet-speak its basically using numbers or signs on the keyboard to create words. Its also known as script kiddie language as only they would use it.

    It is lame and incoherant, in a world where info has to be clear there is no need for confusion in wording.

    It can be used in humour or by complete lamers.
    Im not sure how it developed and to be frank I dont want to know.

    Cool

    31337 = Elite
    H4X0R = Hacker
    14M3 = Lame

    These terms, and many more, are part of a strange little world of jargon that developed somewhere in hacker subculture lore. The best way to decipher it is take in the context of the sentence, then lean back, squint, and tilt your head...

    it is lame but can be funny, like I have one of those Thingeek bumperstickers on my laptop with
    3L33T H4X0R on it.
