Isn't this a bit dated?[edit]

Leet is so last century... well perhaps it isn't dead yet but it is far from ubiquitous in the 2020s; I only use it ronically now and it's a rare sight in the wild. Perhaps the article should reflect this? Stub Mandrel (talk) 19:40, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

I'm agreed with you on this, but not sure where the sourcing for that statement might be found. Or is it a "sky is blue, grass is green, leet is dead" situation? bibliomaniac15 21:28, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
I would argue that excessive emoji usage is a defendant of leetspeek. That being said, this probably doesn't comply with WP:FACTS. --Diriector_DocTalk

Maybe a short history of “k-rad” can be added?[edit]

It appears to be an older name for “l33t sp34k”.
