"jargon plonk" dit :

:plonk: /excl.,vt./  [Usenet: possibly influenced by British
   slang `plonk' for cheap booze, or `plonker' for someone
   behaving stupidly (latter is lit. equivalent to Yiddish
   `schmuck')] The sound a {newbie} makes as he falls to the
   bottom of a {kill file}.  While it originated in the
   {newsgroup} talk.bizarre, this term (usually written
   "*plonk*") is now (1994) widespread on Usenet as a form of public
