A derogatory term used to reference a person who seemingly does not possess any form of individual thought, and instead, mindlessly follows the behaviors and actions of the masses.

Common actions lemmings partake in are the overuse of catch phrases and lingp that the generation may overuse.
When Jimmy told me "L2Play", I knew he was one of those lemmings who just mindlessly repeats the same thing the millions of other lemmings blab out. Poor guy, not a single thought process of his own in his head.

A lemming refers to a purchase/wished-for-item which results from reading an enthusiastic post about a new fabulous product. Overcome by compulsion, readers follow like lemmings diving off a cliff.

Originally coined in the alt.fashion newsgroup in the late 90s, the term has permeated numerous beauty boards/forums/sites.

May be used as a noun or verb. May apply to the buyer but more commonly to the item of desire.

A flemming is a fledgeling lemming.
