Well if it's sad then I belong to that club too.  I started chatting with friend in 1337 when I was around 8 so that my grandma couldn't read what I was talking about. That would have been in . . . uhm, 98?  Yeah, that's when I was 8.

well, my online activity was never monitored, so I started learning it because i would see people doing it, and i was like "What the heck is this?" and I set to work deciphering it. Eventually I saw it enough it became to common place, so I started to pick it up as a natural thing. I have a *HARD* time typing, though, because my hands refuse, they always want to hit the REAL letter instead of the symbols/number, which is probably because I try to type as correctly as possible, so it's pretty much second nature.

that's the original form of l33t, sometimes called "Hacksp33k" to differentiate it. Obviously, it's more complicated, so it eventually "dumbed down" for the masses to what is current day l33t.

Note that all this is just from personal experience of learning it through the years of being online. I could very well have learned from incorrect observations and experiences.

hrm....well, mine, and apparently Miyabi's, was picked up from years of experience back when you could still see it on the internet.

Just off of a quick google search i found this:
l33t text translator

If you switch the l33tness to 100%, it appears to translate to it. Note that their listing probably isnt definitive, since there are different variations of each character that differ from person to person

example: I've seen some people do B like this: |3, which is not how the translator does it. Also note that this way it easy to confuse B and E (which is always 3, ive never seen it any other way)

You could make a thread Shaggy and we could all just talking in old 13375|*34|< and you could learn it that way.

And then a thread was made where every post reads:

I was just picking with the FTW comment.  WTF and FTW are mirrors of one another and you REALLY can't see FTW and not think of WTF.
You can always get what you want if you never count the cost.

I don't. I just think of the words it stands for. Or of FTL.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

For me it depends on which one.  Like some of them (lol and brb being examples) I see them as "l" "o" "l" and "b" "r" "b" but some like "rofl"  I see as pronounced "rofl"  and other like "ftw" I see as "for the win".  Ha ha.  I guess I'm just weird like that.
