Look, I'm ill with this flu-type thing, I'm still fuming from being called an ass whilst trying to help someone, and I just can't be doing with all this tomfoolery. Life is for being serious. It's too short to whittle away with manic attempts to confuse people like me. I bet you lot stay up after 9pm and play your stereos over half-volume. Why I bet some of you are the sort that try to overtake me when I'm doing 70mph in the fast lane of the motorway. Bloody hooligans, the lot of you!

Bar F***ing Humbug. I'm going back downstairs to watch Coronation Street and polish my driving gloves.

From the Wikipedia encyclopedia...

"However, leetspeak is not popular amongst all hackers, and nowadays is most commonly used in an ironic manner to represent immaturity. Many consider it a pointless affectation, and as it has become widely used it is less useful as a way of showing membership of an "elite" group."

Parp !

I am proud to say that I do not have the correct background to have grasped the point and a bloody good thing too as absolutely anything in reference to script kiddies, leet speak (notice I will not stoop to using said vile language) puts my ire into hyperdrive, can't abide any reference to crackers or kiddies on the internet, extreme bah humbug, rant rant
Can we please refrain from this sort of jocularity on the forum it's a serious place for serious discussion and not a playground.

and look how you've upset Roy, we grumpy slightly older men get easily confused, so can we refrain from any more coded posting, thankyou very much .

Anyone who does not share in this light-hearted tomfoolery and such is "off-topic". This is, after all, the Geek News and Humour forum - any attempts to be serious or otherwise lay a downer on the carryings on here could lead to censure, or at least fifty lashes with a wet lasagna noodle.

I take exception to your previous statement. At age 50, I consider myself to be a mature scallywag at the very least!

In all seriousness for a moment (yes, it is possible), I hadn't a clue what your post was all about and I'd never heard of leetspeak before I googled '1337'. I know my way around a server but I obviously don't mix with the right (or wrong) crowd! ...parp!

Who needs 1337 speak - Aussie & Brit speak is hard enough to understand.

Every community develops its own 'in' phraseology. Programmers are worse than most because they will often use syntactical conventions from their languages - (although, Roy, I think you were using <bitingtongue> with the wrong DTD) Gamers use slang that warps ordinary English and blends in IM conventions as well. "LMAO, I rlly pwned u 4 sure" (*sigh* I see that all too often in UT). Or how about those personal ads: "37 yo BIMM N/S DDF SOH ISO W/E DOM TgF for BDSM"









!


Kubrick captured the idea of a defining language subculture in Clockwork Orange.

OK, enough philosophizing from the professor. ò¿ó

Really, the only people that use leet-speak in online games are lamers who think using leetspeak is cool.

Words that are leet/abbreviations/strange that are used include

Pwned (originally a misspelling of Owned)
Owned (see above)
Gj (Good Job)
Ul (unlucky)
Hs (headshot)

They are usually abbreviated because:

Nearing the end of a CS round, there is usually only one man left on each team. If the CT has nearly defused the bomb, but gets killed, there is about 2 seconds before the round restarts - no time to write "Unlucky mate!" but loads of time to write "Ul".

Similarly, in a firefight, it is ok to hold back for a second, type "Gj", then go back into the action.

Leetspeak, as said above, is really only used ironically, taking the mick out of 12 year old AOLers.

I can see that this thread is becoming a bit of a palaver (1) and is in danger of disappearing down the pan(2) in fact to a large extent it is becoming full of pap(3) and as for the meaning of the word Parp:
Parp: Noun. 1. To break wind, to fart. 2. Nonsense, rubbish.

1. palaver: Noun. A tedious fuss or discussion. E.g."What's all this palaver about you and my mum having an argument?" {Informal}

2. Pan: Noun. The toilet (the room and the bowl itself). E.g."I'll get her to ring you back, she's just in the pan."

3. Pap: Noun. 1. Nonsense, rubbish. 2. Faeces. Verb. To defecate. E.g."He was so scared he papped his pants."

We taught our ruling super elite class french as a sop to the fact that the french claimed it as the language of diplomacy, naturally as the elite imperialistic super power ruling most of the world as was our natural right we wished to demonstrate that we were prepared to make concessions unto those countries that envied our supreme position and it was in fact a subtle way of appeasing their jealousy.
The said elite ruling class actually conversed in a dialect known as 'Hooray Henry' a dialect reserved especially for those inbred twerps..oops I mean social ruling class elite intellectuals that drove our fine imperialistic policies forward and made our country what it is today

Wooyay!

This thread is certainly twisting in the wind. English is such a polyglot language to begin with but after the Norman Conquest, there was a huge infusion of French. But it is interesting how some of the french words became incorporated.

For example:

Animal                         Product
sheep (from Germanic sceap)    Mutton (mouton is french for sheep)
cow (old english cu)           Beef (bouef in french)
calf (norse kalfr)             Veal (veau in french)

The peasantry kept their names for the animals they tended but the conquering elite gave to the language what they consumed. If you look, there are many more examples of this.

In France they have a bureau (a french word, of course) devoted to keeping the language pure. In England, they just say, "Bring it on . . ."

As for me, I have come across a number of possible origins for my name ranging from the Hebrew Elias to a derivative of a Norse name to an old English word that had something to do with battle. And then there are all the different spellings:

The double L and single T
Descent from Minto and Wolflee,
The double T and single L
Mark the old race in Stobs that dwell.
The single L and single T
The Eliots of St Germains be,
But double T and double L,
Who they are nobody can tell.

Since I am in the "who they are" category I have finally found the source of my lack of identity.

Hugo: Aha! Yes, indeed. There are a certain people whose jealousy toward their betters, and that's almost everyone, makes it nasty to deal with them.

Hellsbells: It's heard often enough that no formal education is required for understanding.

David: What an interesting observation. As to the purity of the beautiful French language (I think it sounds nasal and slurred), I recall when I lived there that my local acquaintances refused to use my first name as it wasn't French. They would address me by my middle name after frenchifying it to "Michel". I retaliated with Pete and Jack. We did not get along after that.Shock

TPH: It was self-defense on our parts. Wink Lo siento, I'm sorry. Sad

Cor blimey, this thread still running ( a little bit of English vernacular there, our North American cousins may recognize it from Marry poppins as expertly used by *beep* Van Dyke)

Of course much of the English language is also rooted in Latin and Greek as well as plundering from that fine sophisticated French language and I also take this opportunity to heartily thank the French for the extremely sensible direction they took this Sunday, you are to be commended ! ( oops now I've taken the thread into the political arena)

Hmm, I hate to prick your Guru bubble, but it looks like everyone but you. Tongue

Dick van Dyke and his brother Jerry van Dyke are both funny.

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

Oups Well at least I'm in good company, were you as puzzled as me then Roy ? now that I have been initiated into the inner circle of arcane mysteries (thankyou David) I see that it's obvious trickery. #-o Smile

Gary nothing deflates my guruness not even abject displays of neophytness, for to be a true guru the teacher must learn from the pupil as well.. My bubble remains solid and inflated.

Wooyay!

Hugo - either the word censors are bu66ered or David and Gary have thought of a cunning way to bi-pass them with some special character or other. Either way, I agree with you that the censor has way too many normal words in it's library for it's own good.

I saw do away with all online censors!! - I find them most annoying Laughing out loud

That's not to say I like to swear like a trooper from day to day but I have yet to find one that does not exclude perfectly good words cauing much irritation.

This is wonderful - this thread has been split twice and still keeps going and going. Evey forum neads a Threadzilla once in a while.

Thats right, Roy, I do have a certain low cunning at times. And as you saw earlier, I also have a certain talent with languages. I guess that makes me a "cunning linguist."

Put that in your word censor and smoke it.

I do hope you speak in jest sir, for to speak otherwise will likely incur much hurt.

I have noticed with some despair that many clearly have a desire to increase their post count as though it conferred some special status I note the fury that some answer every post available even though they tend to repeat what has already been said and I also take note of those that split their replys across two posts when it could have been said within the original (that has tailed of slightly ) I hasten to add that neither of those situations is applicable to your good self in any way shape or form ! Smile

You now have the opportunity to reply and increase your post count, but beware you may just be guilty of padding your count.
