"polom" is a greeting, usually in our IRC channel. It's a reference to what was saying Tom Bombadil when walking in the forest "Polom polom it's Tom Bombadil" or something like that from a J.R.R. Tolkien book.

Given its use, some community members even traveled to a village called Polom during TikiFestCEST. See pics :-)
