There's a current trend to try and make a point, and then annunciate the phrase "full stop." This is unnecessary and sounds douchy. You can just stop speaking or writing, and it conveys the same thing in a non-shitful way. Thank you.

Read some douchier forums, you'll see it.  It usually translates to "This is decided, anyone who disagrees is stupid."

It's probably the more douchepit version of "/thread." But it also sounds like the speaker is trying to sound all military, so there's additionally a feel of head ripping and neck shitting.

Enid Puceflange might get a pass. None of the douchers I've seen use it have been British.

Sounds more like a douchy way to say “this topic of discussion is now over anything you have to say beyond this matters not”
