Verb or noun. A joke or comment not meant to be taken seriously, but presented in a serious manner.

Thought of as a "cool" thing to do on various websites; the level also functions as a get out of jail free card when your comment is decisively shown to be silly or misinformed because you can claim you were "just levelling".

The term originates from the question of whether you take the comment seriously depending on the "level" you are thinking. In a game of poker, the levels of thinking are:

level 0 = thinking about the cards you're holding
level 1 = thinking about the cards your opponent is holding
level 2 = thinking about what your opponent thinks you are holding
level 3 = thinking about what your opponent thinks you think he his holding
etc
Person 1 - Generic ridiculous stupid comment.

Person 2 - I really hope you are levelling here.

Person 1 - No I'm serious.

Person 3 - Haha you're stupid, you should have left it as a level.
