Is tl;dr a MetaFilter thing? [more inside]

This plate of beans, it vibrates?

In a recent thread about Metafilter memes, I used the phrase "Beanplate Insane" to describe my own sense of frustration with certain over-indulged inside jokes on the site. It occurred to me that it would only be appropriate to have an exclusive inside phrase to go along with those exclusive inside jokes, so I submitted "Beanplate Insane" to the editors of the Urban Dictionary, who officially approved the listing a couple days ago and have now posted the term with my Metafilter-specific definition.

AskMe orthography

Copied from a comment on AskMe: "TEH PORNZ IS SEEKRIT." Why didn't the commenter say "The porn is secret." Is this thought to be a funny way to write? (OK, make fun of me now.)

what is the origin of the "Pepsi Blue" reference?

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the origin of the "Pepsi Blue" reference? I've waded through several searches, but cannot find The Original post to which it refers.

Injokes on the wiki

I for one welcome our injoking overlords. Now I feel all caught up. Don't get an injoke? Look it up. Is this useful? Does it make the injokes more or less funny? Is the community better or worse for this listing account of injokes at MeFiWiki? Does part of the humor involve an illusion of elitism? Does Matt dislike all injokes or just some of them? Most of them? Will he buy me a pony? What do you, the viewers at home, think? psst! go cubs!

Who is quonsar?

Please excuse my newbie question:

Who is quonsar? And why is he always referred on so many MeFi posts?

I'm getting tired of the increasing tendency to add "filter.com" as an implied criticism of the theme of a thread or post, e.g. in this thread we start off with two - northkoreafilter.com and iranfilter.com. Is it just me, or does anyone think this getting a little old.

Is there an insider word for this yet?

What's the jargon word for a doublepost thread that's obviously doomed, and which gets quickly taken over by a cheerful bunch of people with absolutely nothing to say, and no fear of MeTa reproach because the thread could disappear at any moment? I must say, posting in these threads, I've never felt so alive.

Overrun by injokes

Well, so much for serious discussion...I might as well join in Another discussion I was interested in reading gets strangled in the crib by haiku posts, pancake gags, or self-perpetuating running jokes.

MeFi's secret language

MeFi's secret language has been growing by leaps and bounds lately. It's always more fun when you're in on the joke, so here's the spot to post glossary definitions.
