    l33t, stands for elite, many scriptkiddies consider themselves elite (l33t) because they can us a program like Sub7.

    A Backdoor, is a program placed on your computer which will allow a scriptkiddie access to your system. (see Sub7 again).

    Hi
    This is Skidde language which you see now-a-days in every chat room, and online game server. I think It started with the revolution in the Online PC Gaming Industry in around 1944 i think (Doom was the game). Where the players used it to show demonstrate that the speaker was a hacker and someone to be feared.

    i33t or 1337 Comes from "Leet" Which is formed from the word "Eleet "

    It replacing vowels with numbers:

    A = 4
    E = 3
    I = 1
    O = 0

    This language also uses Keyboard Signs to make Alphabets Like A= 4, @, /-\ ; M =|\/|, )v( it's kinda very Flexible.

    For example if you have to write "I Am Eleet Hacker"

    It can be like

    1 4m l33t h4x0r
    or
    1 4|\/| |_337 |-|4x0r
    or
    1 4m 4 133t h4ck3r

    Yep, that's when I started using 1337 speak. Right around the end of the war...

    Im glad you asked this Q. I was wandering the same. I have been gaming for few years now and have picked up some rather strange language. Like "I will pwn you" (own) or I33t skills
    Haxor. Like in teamfortress, Calling newbs who use heavyweapons guy for like two hours straight and have the worst score in the game "hwwhore" "hwuss". And I personally dont go in chats but I can only imagine!!!!
