Quite possibly the best mod to hit SG with a poo-colored finger and a intense heroin addiction. His neck is broken, or fused or something, and he is a cool guy. He mods well, people just can't see that.

When you create new layers of abstraction between the thing or event, you are becoming more meta.

For example: A footnote that is needed to explain another footnote is meta.

The problem with being meta is that if you add sufficient layers of abstraction or complexity between the original event and the convenient abstractions you create to clarify or explain it, you eventually lose all connection to the original. Generally, you need no more than two or three levels in writing.

Too much meta in your writing leads to meta fog.

In writing, this means your writing sucks.
Man, I need notes to explain the notes to my notes for my thesis!" - "That's very meta. Perhaps you should rewrite it?

Although it is a genuine programming language, suitable for large-scale symbolic manipulation, it provides the most commonly wanted Web functionality as built-in primitives, so you don't have to write them.
Check out The White-Paper Manifesto (circa 1996)
For example, in linguistics a grammar is considered as being expressed in a metalanguage, or a sort of language for describing another language (and not itself).
