Snopesed (verb), Snopsing (noun) refers to the act of questioning the origin of an email forwarded to one's inbox. There are certain red flags leading to the recipient initiating a Snopsing. Some are the words "Send this to everyone you know!" the attribution of clever statements or shibboleths to well known people or celebrities, often Kurt Vonnegut or George Carlin and dire warnings and predictions to cause alarm and fear in soft-hearted or gullible folk. The recipient then plugs keywords from the forward into www.snopes.com to reveal basic fallacies and/or half-truths inherent in the message.
My husband forwarded me "George Carlin's Rules for 2007," but I Snopesed it and found out it wasn't from 2006 and it was really coined by Bill Mahler.

My cousin sent me an email suggesting I visit a particular website where every hit will supposedly cause Bill Gates to contribute a dollar to the the Society for Six-toed Sephardic Semites or some other worthy cause, but a Snopsing revealed it to be totally false.

Some grocery stores such as Kroger and Meijer offer super-double coupon redemption from time to time. This is when a manufacturer's coupon may be redeemed for two times the face value but generally not more than a two dollar total.

(droplifted) In addition to leaving merchandise in a store, droplifing may also involve coupons that the dropee does not need or want, discreetly left near the item affected by the coupon. It is extremely bad form to leave expired coupons but it's OK to leave coupons that expire the date they are droplifted. This form of droplifting is generally a female activity but not exclusively so.
A very polite and appreciated practice common in the Upper South i.e. southern Ohio and Indiana, West Virginia and Kentucky. It's more commonly done at stores that offer double coupon redemption such as Kroger and Meijer than stores that don't such as Walmart.
When a store has a super-double coupons redemption day or week, it is even more practiced.
"I got my deodorant for free at Kroger because it was on sale, they had super-double coupons, plus someone droplifted the right dollar-off coupon on the display!"
"I had more toothpaste coupons than I could use, so I droplifted them before they expired."

A person who gets a thrill out of setting people up against each other, especially in online bulletin boards and often regarding people and issues in their locality. The Political Pyromaniac may take a posting or email message and forward or copy it to another person, knowing that it will cause a virulent reaction. The PP essentially likes to set fires and stand back and watch the ensuing fireworks or explosion. They are also the peeping Toms of the Internet and closet drama kings and queens.
Charles, a known Political Pyromaniac, received a group email post. Tina said a website owned by a man named Jim was "an amusing little supposedly non-political site." Charles forwarded the message to Jim. Jim then sent an anti-Tina email to everyone on the group and copied it to her bosses, trying to get her fired. He pointed out that Tina's husband was "a city police officer," which was not relevant to anyone receiving the message. The recipients didn't really know Jim or why he was so upset or what he was getting at. They responded in Tina's defense. Charles sat back and watched the action and then quietly unsubscribed from the email group.
