    Ok so this is what I got from when my bf tried to give the lowdown on this "word"

    It all started with elite or L33T. Its a chat thingy where they all talk jibberish called haxz0r. If you 0wn someone you are better than them in a way. Say you say something in a fight and its harsh, everyone laughs and the other person goes away pissed. They got ownd.

    Now pwnd is just a typo that stuck.

    No it isn't.

    The 'language' l33t came about years ago, when hackers tried to fool FBI web searches by altering English so they wouldn't be picked up and caught.

    Ie, illegal or pirated versions of programs became known as 'warez', porn became known as 'pr0n' and so on.

    Go and play CS. I promise, you'll learn like, the entire l33t language in 10 minutes. Everyone runs about screaming "H3110 g3nt1em2n. 1 Pwn j00r b4s35 nnubz. S3t u5 up 7h3 b0mb pl3z k7hx".

    Also, it's worth mentioning that DrPirate is the worst demonstrator of the l33t language ever. He is sux. ;(

    Pretty much every online game I've seen is infected with l33t minions.
