comment What to say when leaving the table before everybody else?
I think that it is wrong because お先に失礼します is something you say when you leave work before others after overcoming the KY thing while they are still doing work, thus its usage context is very different in my opinion.

comment What is the meaning and usage of ネタ?
Thanks for the elaborate list of explanations. I found that Wikipedia has good explanations supporting your answer: ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%8D%E3%82%BF Furthermore, it seems that ネタバレ can be translated as spoiler, literally "revealing the core subject": ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%8D%E3%82%BF%E3%83%90%E3%83%AC

I understand that the contents of the question seems a bit basic, but I was expecting a bit more discussion regarding this word. There are a couple of good answers already pretty much what I was hoping for.

+1 for stressing the importance of sources. I very much agree with Dave in this. Personally, I call it the "Cultural Blackhole argument".

@YOU Yes, this service is very popular among the Japanese. Combined with a plugin like rikaikun or rikaichan it is an essential everyday tool for my work.
