A Question About Steins;Gate

In episode 11 at 00:10:33 Okabe says "Neropo" and Makise answers absentmindedly "ga". Apparently that exchange reveals knowledge about 2ch (?) culture.

What's the origin of that saying and why would someone answer "ga" upon hearing "Neropo"?

There is a dedicated Steins Gate Q&A thread you know.

Anyway, it's just an internet meme.

..and no, I didn't know about the other thread and wouldn't have searched under "Current Series" for a seven year old anime. I don't browse current stuff, since I always wait for the BDs to be released before watching anything.
