doctor, gel, bend over....Silenced Eh? Anxious

no, I have never heard this. You can give someone the cold shoulder, which is to pointedly ignore them, or you can give them the finger which is to be actively rude to them. Can't really combine the two!

Cold shouldering, developing cold feet are often used. Cold fingering is unheard of!

TFD:

A cold finger is a piece of laboratory equipment that is used to generate a localized cold surface. It is named for its resemblance to a finger as is a type of cold trap.

Typically a cold finger is used in a sublimation apparatus, or can be used as compact version of a condenser in either reflux reaction or distillation apparatus.

The device usually consists of a chamber in which a liquid (typically cold tap water) can enter and leave. Another version involves filling the device with a cold material (examples: ice, dry ice or a mixture such as dry ice/acetone or ice/water).

To cold finger someone: To select someone randomly?

There are actually four definitions and three of them are here already in the thread.

The fourth and clever one is to turn a cold shoulder to a text or Facebook message someone has sent to you. i.e.
You 'cold finger' them.

Hope1 is perfectly correct.
By choosing to ignore sms or messages on Facebook/Orkut and not to respond to them, we are giving the person the 'cold finger'!.
This is rather a new expression.

As part of the 1% of people on the planet who are resisting Facebook, I wouldn't know that.
I'll stick with the snow-woman.

I'm wondering if it's some recent innovation of this...
