"Metafiltered" as a verb

So, as a newbie (on here; rather older in real life) and as (currently) an Englishman, is "Metafiltered" an acceptable verb? e.g. "Spotted this great little news story so I Metafiltered it", or, like, are people going to start getting all OED on me if I do that?

Bored now

Is there anything we can do to stop this happening? There are so many interesting conversations to have about trans issues and that ain't one. [more inside]

Warfighter! What is it good for?

Can we talk about what was in the links in the original thread and have the duke-out over a single word here? [more inside]

Sometimes, like in threads like this, it seems that some are either commiting PUI (posting under the influence) or PWI (posting while intoxicated). What is the correct terminology? (I ask because I do it all the time and it would make a great disclaimer!)

What to call a double comment?

Weekend Humdinger: We lack a term to distinguish repeatedly posted comments in a thread, from front page posts which cover already charted links or territory. Any cute, pithy suggestions to tell one "double post" from the other?
