Japanese Online Idioms (154)

1 Name: Anonymous 2004-10-27 17:19 ID:Heaven [Del]

I'd like to know what some of these strange, reoccuring online idioms mean that japenese use. One of them is (ry, for instance. Here is a thread for your opportunity to explain them to us online gaijin.

A starting point might be this obscure page here:

My girlfriend uses this as a kind of self-conscious scratching-yourself noise.

ƒRƒeƒtƒH is short for ƒRƒeEƒtƒHƒrƒA (kote-phobia)
ƒRƒe means ƒRƒeƒnƒ“ (ŒÅ’èƒnƒ“ƒhƒ‹ƒl[ƒ€)

A ƒRƒeƒtƒH is a person who shows abnormal dislike towards posters with a handle name on BBS.

‚‘‚ ‚—‚¹‚„‚’‚†‚”‚‡‚™‚Ó‚¶‚±‚Œ‚ is the Japanese keyboard's QWERTY or fgsfds

"‚‘‚ ‚—‚¹‚„‚’‚†‚”‚‡‚™‚Ó‚¶‚±‚Œ‚" is also funny because it says "Fujiko". True story.

I am seeing "plz" appear on 2channel more and more...

I don't know whether to laugh or to cry.


117 Name: Anonymous 2005-08-24 07:56 ID:+gxwOY2F [Del]

Let me know when someone draws a character in the plz position. Contortions ahoy!

118 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-08-24 10:54 ID:HEKe6wnB [Del]


Yeah, I've spotted a "Ú×plz", which would be a combination of "Ú×ƒLƒ{ƒ“" and "source plz" (both of which mean the same thing).

Well, I found it hilarious, at least.

Also, just like how "source plz" keeps mutating just because it's said so often and is such a trite thing to say, the Japanese keep coming up with variations on "Ú×ƒLƒ{ƒ“" too. I guess the "plz" is just one of the latest ones.

It isn't actually how you would ram out QWERTY on a Japanese keyboard, it's a particular arrangement (try following the letters) which happens to spell out Fujiko.

What does "gb2/something" mean?

129 Name: Anonymous : 2006-01-14 15:18 ID:qenVkpw5 [Del]

"get back to -something-"

probably from old colonial / racist exclamations of wanting economic / refugee immigrants of former slave classes to "get back to africa (and stop stealing our jobs)" etc. In this case usually an expression of the poster informing the subject that they are in the wrong board section (or wrong board altogether) and where they should go to ("take" their wrong-subject post "back" to).

e.g. someone within the 4chan lot puts a pornographic post on a board about kittens... incensed felophile orders them to "gb2/h/ !!!1" and might well request "modz" to have them "b&" (b-and, banned)

might also be written in this case as a more simple "gb2h" without the slashes... if they posted something that was not allowed on the board but allowed on another (e.g. iichan not 4chan) there would be "gb2/iichan".... and for things that are just plain wrong and have no home, there's the universal GTFO (get the f--- out)

easy enough when you know how ;)

Man, that's the most incompetent spamming I've seen in years.

>>137 did put a valid (but currently non-working) url in his post... that's a bit more competent than some of the spam i've seen recently...
