Theory

Wikipedia:Leet
Everything2 on leet has some unsubstantiated origins that sound plausible
Leet-speak, from “elite”

 

Leet primarily uses homographic substitution, letting similar looking letters, numbers and graphic representation stand in for the proper language letter. For example, in the term “n00b,” the number key for zero replaces the letter “o.” Numbers are frequently used, including in the name of the language, which is often written as “L33t” or “1337.” (source)
