Asplode

Asplode

[æs'ploʊd] - verb

(1) A comical misspelling of the word "explode".
(2) A fan term for the Neopets Team's practice of automatically locking Neoboard topics (blocking anyone from adding further posts) when they exceed 500 replies, regardless of content. A thread that is automatically locked in this way is said to have "asploded" due to too many replies. Users may also try to "asplode" a board themselves before this happens.

Example Usage:

(1) "The Neoboards are currently not working because something asploded. Oops. We'll try and fix them as soon as we can."
(2) "OK, this thread's up to 490 posts. I think I'd better make a follow-up topic before it asplodes!"
