Possibly derived from the +1 feature on Google+, it's a quick way to say, "I agree with this post."

Example

Post A:
OP, don't go to law school with a 14X / 3.0.

Post B:
Post A wrote:OP, don't go to law school with a 14X / 3.0.

+1

I know this is probably a tribute but it sounds kinda mean and I don't know if I'd like my name permanently associated with something like that.

You're probably right. Hopefully Lavitz rises to positions of prestige so that he can one day cement his name as a term that signifies laughter in the face of those that denied you.

Came from a poster named General Tso who was mad all the time, leading to the joke that he was "TSO mad". He legendarily melted down in this thread viewtopic.php?f=1&t=148529&p=4171823#p4171823 where he wrote a letter to Bob Morse letting him know that TLS was violating USNWR copyrights, and that pretty much cemented TSO as a TLS meme

'Retake' is TLS for 'Fuck off'
'Don't go to law school' is TLS for 'I need to see my therapist'.

I very much enjoyed that thread Ludovico Technique, thanks for posting. To answer the above question, looks like he got banned.

What does PW'd mean? I've never seen it used anywhere before. I believe the exact sentence was "I've PW'd a lot."
