These guys are called モナー (monar), and I am assuming the origin of this word comes from 「お前もな」. There's a lot of 2 chan lingo, and 「お前もな」 is just one of them. Another 2 chan lingo that I know is 厨房 (chu bo), which means kitchen, but it actually means 中坊 (chu bo), a middle school boy (beginner).
A lot of Japanese engineers and otaku's are VERY familiar with these 2 chan lingo.
Try 逝ってよし (itteyoshi) to your fellow Japanese engineer colleague, when you want to criticize someone. (via tokyopia forum)

This is a band-aid fix, using a gadget to put my Google Reader's Shared Items directly into my page layout. Blogger's in-browser tool does not make it immediate apparent how to relegate it to the sidebar, so expect this layout to change again soon.
