I only came across "THIS" recently. It's so lazy it's hilarious!
But only one letter lazier than ditto. :)
I like "made of win" myself. When I'm feeling particularly pleased with something, I'll say it's made of the purest winidium.
HAHAHAH I BET IT'LL BE HILARIOUS IF I REPLY TO THIS ENTRY WITH A ONE-WORD SENTENCE
I'M SO FUCKING HILARIOUS SOMEBODY PLEASE SHOOT ME IN THE FACE
I thought the first one was funny.
But only the first one.
You clearly haven't experienced the horror of "+1" yet. When you do, all the thisses and wins and fails in the world will seem like novels.
Did you make that just for this post? That would make my night. Also, I feel that this does not count as a one-word sentence. They did have to type out an image tag.
*shifty eyes* Guilty as charged.
Heh, didn't actually have the habit until the notice, I guess, now is too late to acquire it...

Done it before.
Will likely do it again.
But I am sorry. :(
With only one more
syllable in the first line
you'd have a haiku
Actually submitted to Digg!
Hahaha I love the smile on the 'This' guys face when he holds up his sign.
It's so convenient, though!

"I agree with this statement, and think that it succeeded in communicating its intent."
You are seriously my hero. That goes into my "annoying" category, along with people who use "ur", "l8r", and "sry".
I usually reply to people that do that with "It's not an SMS, you have more than 160 characters to play with so if you want me to read your post BLOODY WELL USE THEM".
Actually, per the rules of sentence structure, "win" and "fail" are complete sentences. The "you" as the subject is implied. "This", however, is not a sentence, and people who just use that can firmly be bludgeoned with the nearest heavy object.
Ah, sixth grade grammar and diagramming sentences, I will never forget you.
Personally the modern "this" doesn't irk me nearly as much as the "me too" of the glory days of usenet.
Oh thank you, thank you, thank you Jeph. Not that I'm not occasionally guilty of things like this, but I do try to sound like I have knowledge of grammar and sentence construction when I write, even if I get it wrong. Well, that and the fact I tend to sound like I'm writing an essay whether I'm writing or speaking.
Nothing to add, I just like you icon.
Do not LOL gently into that good night,
Rage, rage against the dying of the English Language.
So what if it doesn't rhyme. It's fucking true.
Wow, nice userpic idea, maybe I'll make something similar in Russian...
You and 1 other like this.
I can't decide if the first comment is appropriate irony or simply too route and expected.
That being said, I do, in general concur with the statement made in the comic.
It's so hard being a hipster.
I've definitely done that before... even in real life; not exclusive to the internet. Though, I had no idea what "this" was until I looked it up on urbandictionary.com after reading this wonderful comic.
Nevertheless, I want an icon of the "this" guy's face. That smile is the most adorable thing ever. It is win. (<--- is it still bad for me to say it if it's at the end of a longer comment?)
Anyway, Jeph, you never cease to amaze me with your humor. Please keep it up. It makes my days. ♥
PS - Would it be cool if I made an icon of it? Of course I'd credit your art, Jeph.
It's the same thing as responding as "Me Too" or "Ditto."
Example, someone posts something you agree with, and you respond to that with "This." as if to say "I agree with this."
