What on earth is this strange thing? I>3

To me, that says I greater than 3. But people seem to use it to mean "I love".

Is this leetspeek?! :eyebrow:

In my experience, it's not really "I love," but more commonly read as "I heart." As in "I heart fuzzy bunnies and fluffy clouds." :bigblue:

Yes, I've seen that a lot lately - even an electronic message board on the side of a building here in town had "I heart Skateboarding" on it one day. I was irritated. :lol:

I was ambivalent towards it until I heard my almost 50-year-old philosophy teacher use it. Then I thought it was the greatest thing in the world. :lol:

Elite-Speak was created by kids in chatrooms, etc, to keep their parents from being able to understand what they are saying. It works well, doesn't it? LOL

I don't get that, either! Same with XD (for those who don't know...look at it sideways, it's a smiley that's laughing REALLY hard, the D being the mouth and X being the squinty eyes) when people go XDDDDD. What the heck? O_o

<333333 and XDDDDDD are just hyper versions of <3 and XD...<333333 means you REALLY REALLY love that thing, and XDDDDDD means you're laughing really really hard.

Elite-Speak was created by kids in chatrooms, etc, to keep their parents from being able to understand what they are saying.

It goes back even farther than that. {begin Merlin voice...} Leetspeak is a powerful and ancient tool, forged when the Internet was young, and a small number of paranoid academics wanted to communicate without the military types eavesdropping...
