What exactly does "filler" mean?

I see this word in people's answers all the time and I have no idea what it means. I am very embarrassed asking this question rn but I have no idea what it means and it is frustrating me.

  • Filler: "a thing or substance used to fill a gap, cavity, or the like."

    So when people put "filler" in there opinions, they're literally using the word itself as a filler since there's a minimum character count.

  • You need a certain number of characters to be able to post. And when the opinion isn't long people add (filler) to be able to post it.

  • It means that you need to type a certain amount of words before the gag system will accept the answer.

    It's just a "filler" to get their post or answer posted :)
