People usually put that when they're trying to bump a post to the top of the recent posts list. Mostly occurs on for sale threads when someone wants to make sure the post gets seen.

Misuse of it may be frowned upon though.

I kind of like DILLIGAD. :o)

TANJ and TANSTAAFL long predate the internet as we know it. I think Larry Niven popularized them in his Known Space series.
