Support Good Grammar on the Internet

Ban 1337-Speak!

— found at Life is a Prayer.

According to Wikipedia:
Leet (written as 31337, 1337, and l33t), or Leetspeak, is a written form of slang (technically an argot) used primarily on the Internet, but becoming increasingly common in many online video games, which uses various combinations of alphanumerics to replace proper letters. The term itself is a degenerative form of the word "elite", and the language it describes resembles a highly specialized form of electronic shorthand.
H4x0r5 f0r Chr157! LOL!

Tell everyone you know to support the use of standard English graphemes by only using the Roman Alphabet! Adding, of course, the letters J, U, and W.

  1. I think we should all use just Roman, not Arabic, numerals for everything.
