Self-hinning occurs when a person posts a statement of some kind in a forum (usually but not exclusive to www.dogsonacid.com), and is unwittingly setting himself/herself up for a fall, completely unaided by others. This will be because he or she did not think through their post and perhaps did not realise that what they were saying was in fact utterly senseless, contradictory and/or retarded. Self-hinning is an extension of hinning, derived from hin, which originated from a famous thread titled 'Someone fucked with my father. I put hin in his place' on www.dogsonacid.com.
