Pete (05.04.08, 11:47 PM): Thanks, Kjersti you beat me to an explanation.
Mike, it is used extensively on message boards for posting spoiler information so that things can't be spoiled for those who glance and read something by accident.
I use rot13.com to translate whole passages easily. I think firefox has a script extension built into it that allows you to do it on the fly.
Kjersti (05.03.08, 7:27 PM): Applying ROT13 to a piece of text merely requires examining its alphabetic characters and replacing each one by the letter 13 places further along in the alphabet, wrapping back to the beginning if necessary. A becomes N, B becomes O, and so on up to M, which becomes Z, then the sequence reverses: N becomes A, O becomes B, and so on to Z, which becomes M. Only those letters which occur in the English alphabet are affected; numbers, symbols, whitespace, and all other characters are left unchanged. Because there are 26 letters in the English alphabet and 26 = 2 × 13, the ROT13 function is its own inverse: ROT13(ROT13(x)) = ROT26(x) = x for any text x.
michael andrew (05.03.08, 4:28 PM): dude....whats ROT13?
Pete (05.03.08, 12:15 PM): I will ROT13 my response so I won't spoil it for anyone that doesn't want to find out by accident. Gurer ner uvagf va gur zbivr bs gur fgneg bs F.U.V.R.Y.Q.

michael andrew (05.03.08, 2:41 AM): no i didnt...what happened?
Pete (05.02.08, 8:12 PM): Just wondering, but what were you expecting? I loved it, but then again I am a huge comic book nerd. To me it was the best comic book movie adaptation that I have ever seen. Not really a verbatim translation like 300 or Sin City, but as an enjoyable action movie that captured the spirit of the characters involved. Did you stay till after the credits?
Alexandra (05.02.08, 10:38 AM): We are going to see it tonight! I can't wait, heard it was excellent!
