I'm not sure I'll ever be ready for 1337.  Call me old-fashioned if you
must, but I'm rather fond of English prose :P

I have received so many diagrams in ASCII art that I've become immune to
ASCII atrocities. Note that this is a simple declaration, not an invitation
to try me on it :P

lol @ 'heathen glyphs'. I actually find 1337 really interesting from an
academic point of view. I'll write an essay about it one day.

and to tell the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement; but being as
this is English, the most powerful language in the world, whose subtle

question: "Do I feel loquacious?" - well do you, punk?'
