If used to be a remark that someone had said something stupid, I think it started when some said "United", meaning Manchester United, but given there are lots of Uniteds, it was stupid.

I think it was for generalisations that needed clarification wasn't it?

Oh, yes, bring back the good old days of OTF.

Is this also where these ridiculous "Meh", "Heh" and, to a lesser extent, "Nah" interjections originated from?

Dings started off meaning several different thigns, as they existed in the days of anonymous postings, so you could provide the meaning of the 'ding' in the name you put on the posting.

e.g. 'OTF Grammar Check' (or something) might have posted a 'Ding!' after an instance of bad grammar.

They did move to mean something more specific, when anonymous postings were disabled, but I actually can't remember the exact nuance.

General usage was surely, Shirley, for irony detectors.

Weren't they more of a "you've just repeated a canard that was long since demolished here, or displayed a prejudice that is unpopular here, revealing yourself to be outside the OTF elite-clique Thought Police" type thing?

Blimey.

'Ding' seems a very understated response to those misdemeanours, Horse.

I remember there was once an entire OTF thread that descended into this:

Regular OTFer: "Sorry for being crass"
Steve Ignorant: "Sorry for being Crass"
Lamb of God: "Sorry for being Christ"
Lawn: "Sorry for being grass"

And it went on for bloody ages. Ah, the good old days. Better than stringent debates, any day.
