Whence "meh", and can it be stopped?

So since the "fixed that for you" obnoxiousness was addressed in this space recently, in the spirit of Festivus and its attendant airing of grievances, I have to ask, where does "meh" come from? I understand if people are not moved by a particular post, or even if it's borderline despicable. But bothering to weigh in simply with "meh"? What is that? Is it funny? Is it informative? It seems to me the emblem of the condescending, haughty, snarky and unimaginative... you know, all those things that embody MeFi at its occasional worst.
Come on people now, smile on your brother, everybody together and retire this tired, lazy epithet right now.
