You are filled with determination. (R/GD/TT)
This is something that I've noticed recently and has drove me nuts since: There are 38 redirects to L33t Hamm3r Broz., all of them being different ways of writing "L33t Hamm3r Broz." in leet speak. I know this was discussed on the talk page, but the solution they came up with was "Create as many redirects as possible!", which, in my opinion, isn't a very good conclusion. Why do we need so many different redirects? What, just because it's in leet it means that we have to create a redirect for every single possibility? I bet half of those redirects don't even get used, let alone linked to. I understand that we need to create a redirect that doesn't have a period or has "Bro" stretched out to "Brother", but there's a point where you've gone too far. So, let's discuss.

-yeah, that's pretty fucking sad.

personally, I'd just delete the "leetspeak" redirects and leave the plain english-one (plus maybe "1337 Hammer Bros " if that doesn't count as plain english). Nobody who knows enough leetspeak to type it in the the search bar in the first place is going to just write "Leet Hamm3r Bros".

Why is a file redirecting to that, anyways?

It doesn't. I ctrl+c,+ctrl+ved a bunch of links in the middle of WhatLinkHeres and forgot to remove it after making the list :v.

I agree with blof's list.

Yup, we should go with my sister's list. There are too many useless redirects.

They're the standardized version of "Leet Hammer Bro". That's my decision of keeping them but some might disagree. :p
