I understand what pwn means, even in 1337 terms, but i felt it was necessary to add such a possible helpful site for those learning the language of 1337.

This is the main thread regarding pwns

Basically I did not want to hi jack someone else's thread, but to provide a "tool".

I can imagine in a college course for ethical hacking or computer science. Or an online gaming training center, a requirement to take 1337.

Look at chat for example, abbreviated words, smilley's etc. All that stuff is similar in some respect.

Lastly, I think lots of people are getting tired of this "uber" language from a lot of "n00bs". If you go to HardOCP forums, you will see alot of this with people bashing one another personally using this 1337 speak.
