lol at first glance I thought it could mean something like "private earnings," like personal income or something...

makes sense it's a 2ch slang though, from nekojita's link:

【分類】: 2ch, ネットスラング
【読み方】:ワタシトク

「私得」とは他の人は分からないが私にとっては得な事柄がある時に言う言葉である。

自分のみが得となることを指す「俺得」という言葉の派生。
例えば特殊な趣味を持っている人物がいて、その趣味にぴったりな画像が掲示板上に投稿された際に「私得」と書き込む。

万人に受けるようなコンテンツでなく自分だけが好むようなコンテンツであることが多い。

Google those words to check how frequently they are used even outside the site.

発生源がどこだろうと広く使われるようになれば定着するもんですよ。そもそも無知を指摘されて開き直るくらいなら最初から検索してみればよかったのに。
ちなみにこのスレ主と反応よく似てますね。

I for one, refuse to use any word coined after 1923. Darn you young rascals and your newfangled verbiage!

On a more serious note - of course, you shouldn't use words such as this in formal writing, and you won't see them in the newspaper or anything. That doesn't mean they're not worth learning if you come across them.

what is so significant about 1923? And how do you even determine if a word is coined before 1923.

And a lot of scientific and official terms are coined after 1923.

"On a more serious note" should alert you that what came before was facetious.

British trolling is more subtle and genteel than you're used to, perhaps?

I chose 1923 because it contains a run of three and a sum of fifteen, and therefore would be a excellent combination of cards in Cribbage.

(The above is of course a joke. I would not think it possible, or wise, to attempt to explain the significance of The Most Righteous Year to an outsider).
