l33t speak

I was reading some articles at Pocket Plane Group, a Baldur's Gate modding site and finally got fed up with not understanding some of the writing, so I googled "pwn" and came across the Urban Dictionary which explained it to me. It also had entries for l33t (elite) and hawt, plus one or two {unprintable} others that I'm well aquainted with. It allows voting so is another example (like technorati or del.icio.us) of an internet site acting as an information aggregator i.e. representing the collective view of many. Really cute! I am so impressed that I have also published the link in my links bar.
