What does this-ing a comment/forum post mean?

Consider it shorthand for the following phrases:

  • “I agree with this person”
  • “I approve of this post”
  • “This post makes a lot of sense to me and generally jives with my sense of humor”
  • “Look at this.”
  • “I can’t believe they said this.”
  • “This is where you made a mistake.”
    It’s literally pointing something out just for the sake of pointing it out.

I think Dane would take offense to you for calling him gay.
