    You have received an infraction at Ubuntu Forums

    since "aysiu" doesn't accept private messages, which is a hell of a note seeing as he's handing them out, i have to post this here. sorry, but get over it dude. i'll write however i'd like. if you don't like it, don't read it okay?

    anyway, according to "Brunellus", see below, "there is no official forum policy on |337 5p33|<". So take the mod point off as you seem to be raking me over the coals for no reason at all.

    i had a legitimate question. some support forum this is.

    We on the Ubuntuforums take a very dim view of "STFU n00b" posts. That goes for forum user avatars, as well. Please find a less offensive one.

    Also. While there is no official forum policy on |337 5p33|< as yet, consider this a bit of friendly advice: please don't post in 1337. It's unnecessary, hard to read, and it doesn't make you seem any more clever. The working language of the ubuntuforums is English. Questions asked in English are likely to get good technical answers or advice.

    Reason: Inappropriate Language
    -------
    You're supposed to write in English
    -------

    This infraction is worth 1 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.

    All the best,
    Ubuntu Forums

    No problem; I can't read the thing anyway.

    Nice try, but if you did, you'd take the time to write it in a way that was easy to read and understand, to make it a bit easier for other forum members to help you.

    Since you didn't, how can you expect to be taken seriously at all?

    Please.

    People can't help you if they:
    A) Don't understand what it is you're asking.
    B) Get frustrated with the formatting and poor display of grammar.
    C) Have to translate what it is you're typing.

    Now fair enough, you have a right to use the most irritating language available today, but don't expect others to help you when they are asking you kindly to make what you're asking understandable, or even human readable.

    I know l337 is a big cool thing now, But it can really irritate people.

    As far as I know l337 was never cool to begin with. It was just another way of emphasizing to the people outside your clique thhat "you're not as smart as we are!", and about as lame as the jocks that posturing across the school cafeteria were at the time. A complete waste, in other words.

    I agree, it's for people who have a certain...There isn't a nice way to put it so I'll leave it lie.

    It's the same with SMS shorthand...It doesn't make it quicker, it just gets lost in translation far easier
