Question: What is 'leet' or '1337'?

Question: What is 'leet' or '1337'?
=======================================================
'Leet' or '1337' is the jargon spelling for 'elite'. To be leet/elite means to be very skilled with computers and software.
Answer: In the days of Windows 95, a group of infamous hackers named "The Dead Cow Cult" used to take remote control of Windows 95 machines. They used a nasty software package called Back Orifice, and used the network port 31337 to take over thousands of computers worldwide. Their purposeful misspelling of the world "elite" as "leet" or "1337" was a way to bypass censorship programs. Years later, the Dead Cow Cult influence has morphed into a subculture of jargon and power user language. People who speak "leet" today are not necessarily hackers... leetspeak is often the trademark of serious Internet gamers and people who pride themselves on being technically savvy.
