l33t is an abominable crime against real language. What this guy has committed is merely gross stupidity; trust me, if he continues in this vein, the universe will take care of him for us; that's why we have Darwin Awards.
The thing I find funniest though is that l33t in its native, almost readable, form was created wholesale by the writers of MegaTokyo a few years ago, but no-one who would actually use it "in anger" would believe you if you told them: Being mostly macho-obsessed twerps for whom the association is one of "gayness" or possibly "t3h g4yz", this is an unbearable slight in their worldview (I won't call it a culture)...
