I think I'm getting old so can someone help me out with an explanation ?

I've seen a few posts in forums where someone will say something and then another poster will reply/comment with :

"This!"

What the hell is that supposed to mean ?!?!

I was going to write my opinion out but since this person encapsulated my veiw so succinctly I see no need to write a post that essentially repeats what they said so I will just show my support by writing "this"
