comment Is “síguenos” a real Spanish word?
"Follow me" would be "sígueme" in Spanish, and this phrasing is much older than the Internet. "síguenos" is the same phrase, only with a plural object.

comment What is the difference between “me gusta” and “a mí me gusta?”
It's a matter of emphasis. The extra "a mí" shifts the emphasis onto who likes it, implying but not stating that others might not like it.

Good point about finding alternative phrasing instead of using the same phrase in Spanish.

comment Accent on the word “a” in 1909 Reina Valera Bible
I looked up in my Spanish Bible, an RV1960 and, sure enough, the accent is gone from the "a". It also had "lo seco" instead of "la seca".

Gee I would expect the usage of such a word to be a supremely extraordinary event. So I'm not surprised. ;)

comment “Sockpuppet” en castellano
It's interesting that, in international politics, when a supposed ruler of one country was really completely under the control of some foreign ruler, the phrase used (in English) was a "puppet" ruler. So the imagery predates the internet and Sesame Street by more than a century. Did Napoleon put a puppet ruler on the Spanish throne? What Spanish phrase is used for that situation?

Good Edit. I'm hoping some other answer will deal with the internet slang usage (widely used in Stack Exchange meta). And that has to be a humorous back reference to the Sesame street gang, probably more widely known than Lambchop, although Lambchop is older.
