Amy: Did you see the insensitive rant that Joe posted on his blog?
Bob: Yeah. I've already sent it to HuffPo and Gawker. Hopefully we can post up where he works for everyone to see.
Amy: Woah, you're running a bluelisting campaign? I was just asking if you'd seen it. Jesus christ, Bob.
The temporary change in personality that occurs after being deeply involved with a movie, book, game, or some other work of fiction.
Can also be expanded to nonfiction ("documentary lag" or some other variant), but is less common because those works are typically experienced through the frame of the reader/player/watcher's default personality.
CHRIS: Don't think. Don't hesitate. Just say it.
ASHLEY: Why are you talking like that?
ASHLEY: You sound like a movie trailer. Is this because you just finished watching Fight Club?
CHRIS: Uhh... yeah I guess I'm a little fiction lagged.
Misuse of a safety mechanism, like a fire alarm, danger hotlines or report buttons on a website, to censor speech without regard to the intent of the safety mechanism.
A type of rulebombing
Fire alarming is a problem, because it:
(a) disrespects actual instances of dangerous events the mechanism is designed to prevent, and
(b) causes people who have to monitor uses of that safety mechanism to show skepticism to future uses of that safety mechanism, since the number of serious instances are diluted.
I posted a video critical of this girl's ideology on YouTube, but now all of her supporters are fire alarming me.
A post intended for a large audience yet posted on a single person's wall to appear more genuine. Since proxy wallposts are visible through homepage feeds, one can advertise a trait of oneself that would be construed as bragging if in the form of a status.
Suppose you want to advertise to your friends that you are caring and social. This is impossible to brag about, so instead just find your friend who shares the most mutual friends and write this gem of a proxy wallpost:
"We had such a great time last week! I miss you so much <3"
Soon, everyone you know will see it in their feed. And, unlike a status, no one will call you on it for fear of you playing the None Of Your Business card.
Satisfaction from having consciousness of something that was previously unconscious, such as watching a comedian and finally having a way to describe "that thing" you've noticed at an unconscious level for quite some time, or reading about "Words For Things You Never Knew Had Words" and having words for those things.
CHRISTINA: Holy fuck, Jake was such a dick during our argument at dinner. I walked out. And when I was driving home, I had the best comeback!
JESSICA: There's a term for that. Esprit d’Escalier. Staircase wit.
CHRISTINA: There's a term for that?! Oh god, expliment!
Attempts to refute an argument by showing that it matches a pattern of behavior typical of a person or group. What makes something right or wrong is the set of reasons for it, not the ability to recognize that it exists. (Can also be thought of as argument by pattern-matching.)
"You match a pattern of behavior or stereotype that I have described, therefore you are wrong."
Libertarian bingo, liberal bingo, feminist bingo, MRA bingo, and pretty much any bingo card refutation are examples of bingo arguments.
A kind of illegality that is laughed at, rather than taken seriously. alt spelling: illeglol
