becuase it means "elite" or 31337 3=E 1=L 7=T The double "E" would be like the I with an E sound, making Eleet

... which is a kind of 'sub-language' retardation of english that has caught on with internet gamers over the last several years. If you've ever seen somebody using odd symbols to spell words theres a good chance its part of 1337 speak. Like n00b, @$$ and such.. Also very common in gaming nicks etc

Unfortunately I blew past my '1337 milestone' during the pAla7-2 craze of 2 weeks ago :D

Maybe so, but atleast it doesn't take forever to type a single word, not to mention a whole sentence. ;)
